Greyhound bus travel is one of the best and most cost effective ways to see Australia. There is a great network that allows you to travel all over the country.
One of the benefits of the Greyhound bus in Australia is that you can book your journey from A to B but there is flexibility to hop on and hop off if that takes your fancy. So for example if you book from Sydney to Brisbane, you might want to get off at Port Macquarie or Surfers Paradise on the way.
Bus passes can be valid for up to 12 months and you can purchase passes with credit of 50 km to 20,000 km. You can do any number of trip combinations until you run out and then top up if you are so inclined. If you want to travel the whole of Australia, then it could cost you as little as AUD$1 per kilometre!
Greyhound buses in Australia are great if you want the freedom and have the time to travel and explore. They’ll be lots of like-minded travellers on the bus too so you can share tips on where to find accommodation at your next destination and what attractions to pursue.
For those with less time wanting to meet backpackers and fellow travellers, an adventure tour might be more suitable for you as you won’t need to worry about wasting time finding a place to stay and where to find the best activities as you are likely to have a guide or it’s all included in a package. Australian adventure tours or Australian Greyhound buses? – Maybe you’ll do both!
