Two of us are going to Melbourne for a wedding in September and will then fly to Brisbane for a few days, we want to go from there to Cairns but are trying to decide the best way to get there, we'll be flying a lot within the few weeks that we're there so im thinking train or coach, Greyhounds seem ridiculously expensive, any tips??
greyhound will probably be the cheapest. look into a flight though. I know trains are a lot more than buses
if you do take a bus be prepared for a looong journey. it's around 22-24 hours
Flying with either Jetstar or Virgin Blue may work out cheaper then getting the Greyhound bus.
Why not have a bucket of fun and hire a campervan and drive yourself and hop along up the coast with heaps of other people in a campervans.stcacks of fun and not so expensive. check it out!
