The Greyhound KM Pass is one of the most popular ways to travel the East Coast of Australia and offer comfort, flexibility and convenience for all types of traveller.

Stopping at heaps of locations all along the East Coast, Red Centre and Northern Territory you’ll be able to explore spots like Byron Bay, Noosa, Ayres Rock, Airlie Beach and Mission Beach as well as connecting you with the departure points for Fraser Island and The Whitsundays – check out the route map tab for more info!

The hop on, hop off format allows you to travel at your own pace (with up to 12 month to use all your KMs), so whether you know all your travel dates or want to see how things go it’s a perfect fit.

Love Byron Bay? Why not extend your stay? Not so keen on Brisbane? Leave a bit earlier!

The choice is yours!

You can even exchange extra KM for awesome travel experiences too!

Unlike the set route passes you can also backtrack on your Greyhound KM Pass – so if you find you want to head back to a previous stop or change your route that’s no problem at all.

If you’re not sure how many KMs you’ll need, here are some of the most popular routes;

  • Cairns to Melbourne = 3950km
  • Cairns to Sydney = 3150km
  • Cairns to Brisbane = 2200km
  • Cairns to Alice Springs = 2940km
  • Sydney to Melbourne = 1060km
  • Brisbane to Byron Bay = 195km

Once your Greyhound KM Pass is issued you will be able to quickly and easily manage your travel dates using their online portal – allowing you to check bus timetables, book your next trip or change journeys you’ve already booked in.

So whether you’re blasting up the East Coast in a few weeks, taking some time heading to the Red Centre or Top End the Greyhound KM Pass is an ideal way to travel around Australia.
