Travel at your leisure with Greyhound Australia between Sydney and Cairns with this Bruce Cobber Package.

This package lets you hop on and off wherever you like along the way; stay and explore the places you want to visit the most and soak up your trip in Australia.

Travel from Sydney to Byron Bay, the most eastern town in Australia. Here you can learn to surf with a half day surf lesson included. There is plenty to do in and around Byron Bay for an extended stay, we suggest you save a day and go on a day tour of Nimbin Town before you leave.

As you travel further up the coast, you must stop in Townsville where, just a short 20 minute ferry ride away is Magnetic Island. A stunning place to sit at the bar and relax overlooking the pristine waters with your included 1 night stay.

When you arrive in Cairns, be prepared for a day tour of the gorgeous Atherton Tablelands; a region laden with cascading waterfalls, lush rainforests and perfect scenery. You will see the amazing Cathedral Fig, have the opportunity to swim in Lake Eacham and be taken to waterfalls and other locations for stunning photographs.
