How much does a Greyhound bus ticket cost

Greyhound Australia: All bus passes, routes & lots of tips

Greyhound Australia is the largest bus company on the red continent. For several years they have been cooperating with McCafferty's (under the name Greyhound Australia) and therefore represent the undisputed bus monopoly Down Unders. With over 1000 destinations, they go to almost every place, no matter how small, every day and always offer their passengers the opportunity to get on & off everywhere. Only the route network in Western Australia is not particularly extensive and only includes a few specific stops. Due to their low prices, general punctuality, high level of comfort, modern buses and experienced bus drivers, they enjoy a very good reputation nationwide.

Important NOTE

Due to the current corona pandemic, it is unfortunately not possible to book bus tickets or passes at the moment!


Important information about booking

When booking, it is essential to ensure that it is not possible to book a ticket at very short notice, as several days pass from booking to receipt of the ticket!

As soon as you have confirmed the booking of your desired pass and paid the outstanding payment, you will receive an email with your ticket and other important information. Nevertheless, it should be noted that the passport is requested in Australia, the payment is not immediately received in the account for a transfer (credit card payment is much faster), the booking must be processed and the usual opening times of a travel agency must also be taken into account. Due to these factors, early booking is essential.

Furthermore, we want to prevent disappointment and therefore only accept bookings that are made at least 5 to 6 days before the desired departure date. In our booking calendar (see "Planned travel date") all possible booking dates are highlighted in green - however, dates that are too short cannot be selected. After receiving the ticket, you can start your well-deserved journey with one of the comfortable Greyhound Australia buses and explore the country flexibly.

We wish you an unforgettable time in Australia!
