By Bus

Tropical North Queensland by bus


Jump on the bus and head to Tropical North Queensland. Buses depart multiple times a day from Brisbane and travel up the coast to Cairns. The journey takes about 30 hours and you can enjoy the ever-changing scenery as you travel through almost 2000km of Queensland countryside.

Greyhound Australia’s high-quality coaches have panoramic windows, comfortable reclining seats and air conditioning, and offers free wi-fi and USB chargers in every seat. You can choose to make a direct journey or buy a “hop-on hop-off” ticket and break up the trip with overnight stays along the way.

Once you’re in Cairns, Translink, operates a regular public bus service servicing Cairns’ suburbs including the northern beaches and Palm Cove.
