Brisbane to sydney in Bus/Train

by irish147

Is it possible to take a bus to Sydney? What does this cost, and how long?

Thanks

check out the greyhound bus site

and for the trains - countrylink

Re: Brisbane to sydney in Bus/Train

Train takes about 14hrs and you can travel either day or night.

Countrylinks Brisbane XPT train runs once each day from Brisbane Roma Street station to Sydney Central station. The train departs Brisbane early in the morning, travels through the day then arrives in Sydney in the evening. The journey takes about fourteen hours.

the train costs around $100 and like previously said takes about 14 hours. I have caught the train before and in the way of scenery it is definitely nothing to write home about. These days you can usually find airfares for not too much more than that and the trip only takes 90 minutes.
Hope this helps

Re: Brisbane to sydney in Bus/Train

by srinpav

oh yeah as for the bus this is also possible.I think the bus would also be about $70-$100 and would take slightly longer but wouldn't be the most ideal way to get to syney from briz.

Re: Brisbane to sydney in Bus/Train

I would seriously advise against the bus unless you plan on getting off along the way, and if that's the case there are several companies that do hop on/ hop off deals that any decent baclpackers can help you with. If you in Bris then the place to start would be YHA headquarters which is about 5 min walk from CBD near the Roma street train station (well it was when I was there last) and as already mentioned with the airfare wars in OZ at the moment you can catch a flight on one of the cheaper airlines for as much if not less then the cost of either the bus or the train and if travelling direct with no plans to see any of the amazing things between the two cities FLY, FLY FLY :)

Good day
Thanks for your info here

14 Hrs is a long time..
I think Fly would be the best way

thank

Flying ends up being a lot less expensive than the train and bus in Auz. Check out Tiger Airlines. I flew them while in Auz, and preferred them to JetStar, Qantas cheap airline, which will get a scathing letter from me. Tiger is quick and to the point. www.tigerairways.com/au The only problem is they don't fly out of Brisbane. They fly from the Gold Coast and Sunshine Coast though. ~

Travel Tips for Brisbane

The best feature was the...

by hollyday

The best feature was the brilliant mid-winter weather, the sun was hot and the sky was the deepest blue imaginable. I spent the weekend checking out the city,all very accessible on foot which was wonderful.There are plenty of ferries crossing the river at many locations, plus bridges with pedestrian paths which makes it a compact city to explore. I enjoyed the walk along the river from the motel to the South Bank Parklands. The weather was fantastic, the markets were lively and everything was in one place ie: the museum, art gallery, markets,etc.

THE ROCKS

by balhannah

The Rocks, is a name of a marvellous park in the suburb of Seventeen Mile Rocks, Brisbane.

It is located on the site of the former Queensland Cement Limited quarry with some of the
industrial bits & pieces still in the park, as well as public art reflecting the park's industrial heritage.

There is stacks of room, with a large lawned area which is adjacent to the open-air stage. The Amphitheatre provides grassed benched seating and is suitable for smaller events than the Great Lawn staging area.

This would have to be the best park I have seen for children, ours absolutely loved it!!!

There is a junior playground suitable for toddlers to eight year olds, a half-size basketball court, flying fox and a climbing net.

The water play area was beautifully landscaped, and provided much fun on the warm day we visited.
We had a family bbq, there are eight of these situated through-out the park, and quite a few shelters.
Cycling is allowed on the paths, or walk along the 800 metre Brisbane riverside promenade which we did.

There were two sets of Toilet blocks, plenty of rubbish bins, car parking, and even a
community market garden.

A word of warning, the park IS VERY POPULAR, AND ALL BBQ'S WERE TAKEN BY 8.30am when the park opened.
Do not worry to much about not be able to use a barbie, as these are public property, so just ask.

Take you children here, they will love you forever, and want to come back for more!

Oh, I nearly forgot, the Ice-cream Van makes an appearance too! Counihan Road, Seventeen Mile Rocks

Leave the hustle and bustle behind

by Aleyd

Coochiemudlo Island (Coochie to locals) is a relatively small island just off Brisbane. It is a great place to stay with kids or teenagers, as they can roam the island freely and safely.

One of my favourite activities is getting on my push bike and taking off for a ride around the island, and in and out of the local streets.

There are at least 2 beaches you can swim at. Both have barbeque areas. One of them hires out things like surf skis and small sailing boats. There is a golf course, tennis courts, lots of restaurants and many craft stores.

Coochie is a laid back island that has no high rise or chain stores. It is a perfect way to go back in time to a simpler life.

Coochie is great for a day trip, a long weekend or as long as you can get away.

You can get to Coochie using the car or passenger ferry from Victoria Point.

Two hour trip #1 Surf beaches, Sunshine Coast

by tiabunna

In under two hours easy driving, you can reach the surf beaches of the Sunshine Coast, the name for the coastal area north of Brisbane (it’s not listed in VT, but in Australia is generally considered a city, even though it consists of several municipal areas). If we exclude the surf beach at Bribie Island (the closest surf beach to Brisbane but not generally considered to be part of the Sunshine Coast) the first beach we reach is Caloundra. I’ll allow a little bias to creep in here, and let on that this is my preference – nice surf areas, pleasant town centre, plus safe still water beaches in the Pumicestone Passage behind the northern tip of Bribie Island.

At the northern end of the Sunshine Coast, Noosa is probably the best-known of the region’s beaches. It also is the place to be seen if you count yourself among the rich and famous, who tend to frequent it. Needless to say, the prices can also match that image – but it’s a very pleasant beach. Between Noosa and Caloundra you will find a string of other very pleasant beaches, with varying stages of development. Some time soon, I’ll prepare a full VT page on this area which, thankfully, has managed to keep "development" in some sort of balance with the area's natural charms.
