- Travel & Tours
A flight from Sydney to Cairns takes about 3 hours. Sure, it’s quick, but have you thought about what you’re missing along the way?
The scenic beauty of the Blue Mountains, just a hop, skip and a jump away from Sydney. The delights of the Hunter Valley Wine Region. The ultra-hip surf town of Byron Bay. The endless fun and adventure of the Gold Coast. Everything that big, bustling Brisbane has to offer. Fraser Island, the Whitsundays, rafting at Mission Beach and snuggling with a koala on Magnetic Island. Really, you’re zooming past a lot of fun on this flight.
Introducing your FOMO cure-all: the Greyhound Whimit Bus Pass.
It’s transport around the east coast made simple – without plane delays, blocked ears and old mate behind you digging their knees into your back due to the non-existent leg room.
Not only will a Whimit pass get you to and from all major cities on the east coast, you can stop off at every one of the hidden gems on the way, all included in the cost.
There are no restrictions on destination and distance – you just choose how many days you need (7, 21, 45, 60, 90, 120 or 365), and make as many trips as you like in that time. We’re talking some serious value here – flights aren’t cheap, especially when there’s a whole bunch of places you want to see.
Safe, comfortable, free WiFi and USB chargers at every seat – with Greyhound, you can kick back and relax as you take in the unique scenery of the Australian countryside (in between naps, of course).
It gets better – as a YHA member, you get a sweet discount so you can spend less on transport and more on all the unforgettable experiences waiting for you.

Australia is a big, beautiful country with so much to see and do. Really – bussing is the only way to even come close to seeing it all.
Sound fair enough? Of course it does!
