Difficult. You're probably going to want to spend a night. In which case you could take a car. IF you wanted to take the train, the service is the Queensland Rail Tilt Train. However, the earliest departure north is 11.55am, and you won't reach Bundaberg until 3.30pm. Coming back, depending on the day, you could be back in the morning if you get the ...

As per some other reviews online: Some of the trains are fitted with luggage racks and toilet facilities (usually located behind the drivers cabin or near the guard's cabin) And last year there was a drive to improve the toilet facilities that did exist, where they existed: Transport and Main Roads Minister Scott Emerson said it is reasonable ...

To look up public transport options in Queensland, sadly there isn't currently one single place to look. For south east Queensland, the Translink website has a journey planner that covers buses, trains and ferries for the area. Unfortunately, you're after information on a different bit of the state, so Translink is no help... Qconnect provides urban bus ...

Yes, you can visit it! On days when parliament is sitting, there's a tour at 2pm, or you can watch from the public gallery. On Mondays to Fridays when parliament isn't sitting, there are tours at 1pm, 2pm, 3pm and 4pm. The tours take a little over half an hour, and you need to get there a little in advance as you need to clear security. The entrance is ...

The SEEQ cards cost either $79 (3 days) or $129 (5 days), and they basically offer 3 things : 2 one-way trips on the Airtrain 3-5 days of unlimited travel on other TransLink services Discounts at various retailers Realistically, most of the "discounts" listed appear to be things that you'd expect to find in the free tourist guides/maps/etc available at ...

Some friends and I went to Australia during almost the exact same time period two years ago. To be honest, diving the reef was too important to us to even think about waiting until we got there. We booked a 3 full day trip through divethereef.com, and we felt like we got a great deal. I think we paid something like 500 USD which included double cabins ...

Unless you are so flexible that you can go home before the 20th Dec or arrive after the 6th January, I would consider your travel high-season and likely to be full early. From my experience trying to book remote diving locations or stays in more famous destinations is that during holiday seasons everything is extremely packed in Asia and has to be booked ...

The dirty color was likely the result of sunscreen, soaps, lotions, etc... combining with the high acidity of the lake water. It was likely a local occurrence that you ran into as most of the lake is still extremely clear. One other thing... the color does change between green and blue based on time of day and other factors... perhaps what you saw was ...

With the help of the very handy TransLink journey planner, it turns out it can be done just fine! Currently, there are no trains serving the Sunshine Coast (though a branch line is proposed). Instead, you need to take a Nambour Train from Roma Street Station or Central Station, and then change at somewhere like Woombye for the bus to the coast. The train ...

No, the Go Card is not valid in Cairns. As you quote yourself, the Go Card is only valid for transport in areas managed by TransLink in South East Queensland, and as detailed by TransLink these are roughly bounded by the Sunshine and Gold Coasts.

Yes, there are several, and most run multiple services a day. Most will stop along the way though - rather than being a direct service. Henry's Airporter The Pickup Company Sun Air Cooloola Connections Prices and times vary, so it's best you have a look and choose the best for you and your group.

As I'm now in Cairns, just back from a liveaboard, the answer is - it depends! Specifically, it depends on the kind of trip you want If you're after a short trip (just a few days), to one of the nearby bits of reef, and/or you want to do your Open Water qualification, then you can wait. There are quite a few boats aimed at beginners, running short-ish ...

According to the WikiTravel article on Port Douglas there are at least two companies offering shared and group transport between Cairns and Port Douglas: Exemplar Coaches and Limousines Sun Palm Transport Niether specifically mentions Oak Beach, but this is a tourism-driven part of the country and airport shuttles are generally extremely flexible with ...
