Getting there by bus

Cairns & Northern Beaches By Coach/Bus

By Coach/Bus

Coaches depart multiple times daily from Brisbane and travel up the east coast to Tropical North Queensland. The direct journey can take approximately 30 hours, so you can relax and experience the ever-changing scenery as you travel through almost 2000km of Queensland countryside.

There are two bus services available for the journey – Greyhound Australia and Premier Motor Service. These top-quality coaches have panoramic windows to enjoy stunning Queensland landscape, comfortable reclining seats and air conditioning to relax in cool comfort. Greyhound also offers free Wi-Fi and USB chargers in every seat. With both services you can choose to take a direct route or buy a “hop-on, hop-off” ticket and break up the trip with overnight stays along the way.
