Travel to Canberra

By Plane

Regular direct flights operate to Canberra from most capital cities with the major airlines. Travelling from Darwin and Auckland will require a brief stopover in Sydney or Melbourne. In some instances it may be more cost effective to fly to Sydney and get the bus to Canberra from Sydney (details below). You can book flights via Webjet or Google Flights.

To get to Canberra city centre from the airport you can take the regular Airport to City bus, or a taxi, or rideshare (eg Uber). There is a ride share waiting area on the right hand side as you exit the terminal.

If you have requested billeting your host may be able to collect you by private arrangement.

From Sydney By Bus
