The Greyhound-Australia bus stops in almost every small village (with beautiful names like "Woolgoolga" and "Coolangatta") but of course also in the major cities. There are daily departures and between the larger cities and towns you can often choose between several departures each day. Night drives are not as frequent, but it'll save you a night in a hostel.
The Greyhound kilometer pass is valid for 12 months (from the time of your first trip). The kilometer pass can be purchased with as little as 500 km and all the way up to 20,000 km. You may find it difficult to estimate how many kilometers you need for your journey, but you can get help from one of our KILROY travel experts. Many of our travel experts have traveled extensively with bus in Australia and New Zealand and they have plenty of tailor-made advice to give out. And if you accidentally purchase a pass with too many kilometers, then you can redeem them in exchange for fun and activities such as a skydiving trip, a sailing trip in the Whitsundays, surf lessons and much more! But you can also exchange the kilometers for accommodation nights in the larger Australian hostels and the YHA hostel network as well as Nomads Backpackers and Base Backpackers. Finally, you can also redeem your kilometers for camper rental. That's quite convenient if you decide to try our driving yourself Down Under.
Whenever you buy a Greyhound kilometer pass you also select a predetermined distance, such as 2000 km or 4000 km. Every time you reserve (online or phone) a seat on a specific Greyhound bus route, the kilometers are automatically debited from that number. You can always go through your own account tracking to see how many kilometers you have left.

Tip: Most backpackers in Australia travels along the East Coast from Melbourne or Sydney to Cairns in the northern part of Queensland. This is a bus trip of around 3000 kilometers. For this trip we recommend the 4000 km Greyhound bus pass. With your extra kilometers you can go forth and back between two cities on your route
