The Greyhound bus provides a really easy way to travel around Australia. There are hop on hop off passes and the most popular route is from Sydney or Melbourne up the East Coast to Cairns.
Greyhound has the largest terrestrial transport network in Australia, and with a Whimit Pass you can visit bucket-list cities like Cairns, Townsville, Airlie Beach, Agnes Water, Rainbow Beach, Hervey Bay, Noosa, Brisbane, Surfers Paradise, Byron Bay, Sydney, Canberra, Melbourne, Adelaide, Alice Springs and Darwin – all with the one ticket!
This Whimit pass still has the hop on hop off feature but, it allows you to travel in any direction that you please on any route!
7 Day Whimit Pass ***Super value for money***
You can now purchase a 7 Day Whimit pass from The Rock Tour and this offers fantastic value for money when planning your trip to Alice Springs.
With DAILY departures from Adelaide and Darwin it is really economical to travel across the country, join our 3 Day Uluru Camping tour and then continue on the Greyhound network either back to Adelaide or onto Darwin. We cannot get over how cheap this is compared to flying into Alice Springs!
You can also travel from Cairns to Alice Springs once a week (Wednesday) and then join The Rock Tour and still have 2 days of travel left on your pass to continue onto Adelaide or Darwin!
