With more than 180 stops across the country and services in all mainland states and territories, Greyhound is Australia’s largest coach network. Here are our most popular routes to Melbourne!
HOW TO GET AROUND MELBOURNE
Your Greyhound bus to Melbourne will drop you at Southern Cross Station Coach Terminal, the city’s transport hub.
From there, you’ll discover just how easy, convenient and inexpensive it is to get around in Melbourne. There’s a reason Melbourne is often ranked as one of the most liveable cities in the world! Melbourne’s straightforward grid layout makes it easy to find your way around, and most major attractions are within walking distance of each other in the city centre.
Of course, there’s plenty to do outside the city, too – make sure you catch a tram to St Kilda, where you can take a stroll on the beach, ride Australia’s oldest rollercoaster at the iconic Luna Park, and spot adorable penguins waddling back to their nests after dark!
