Bus

Why not let someone else do the driving? Bus travel is a relaxing way to arrive at your Queensland holiday destination. Direct services to Brisbane depart from Darwin, Sydney, Melbourne and Adelaide, with many connecting services throughout Queensland.

Almost all of the major towns along the Queensland coast are serviced, as well as regional hubs like Charleville, Longreach and Mount Isa. You might want to book a coach all the way to Cairns, or travel only as far as Australia Zoo. Connections and bookings are usually flexible in terms of get on/get off arrangements.

There are routes and timetables available on the Greyhound site.

Bus Travel Times

Sydney to Brisbane: 15 hours 
Melbourne to Brisbane: 23-28 hours 
Adelaide to Brisbane: 34 hours 
Mount Isa to Brisbane: 26 hours
