Interstate & country bus services
Generally less expensive than trains, buses are one of the best ways to see more of Melbourne and Victoria. Well equipped and with modern fleets, a number of bus lines operate throughout the state and offer a broader range of destinations and itineraries than the train network.
Country and interstate buses pick-up and depart from the Melbourne Transit Centre at 58 Franklin Street, near the top of Swanston Street, and at Southern Cross Station. Daylight and overnight buses arrive each day from both Adelaide and Sydney and take between 11 and 12 hours. However, a slower more scenic journey can be experienced with smaller bus companies that ply the coastal routes.
