Exploring Australia is fun – even more so when you do it the DIY way instead of letting a travel agency plan the trip itinerary for you. If you’re planning to take to the road alone and perch your flags along the route from Sydney to Canberra soon, here are a few useful tips you might want to check out as to make your adventure in the Land Down Under is a bit less stressful and a lot more interesting.
How to get there
If you prefer to travel by rail, you can hop on a train departing from Sydney’s Central Station to Canberra Railway Station in Kingston via the Southern Highlands, Goulburn, and Bungendore. If you opt for the train, expect to spend about 4.5 hours in transit, and book the ride in advance through the NSW Trainlink website.
In case you’re not a huge fan of trains, you can board a Sydney to Canberra bus or coach and cut time spent on the road. Before you cart your bags to the station, you should check ticket prices and departure agenda at different operators and pick the transport company and time slot that suit your trip agenda and budget best.
