It’s easy to travel to Canberra from overseas or interstate. And, once you’re here, getting around is hassle-free.
While right now travel is restricted, we are usually connected to the world by 14 international flights each week. There are:
You can fly into Canberra on one of multiple flights each day from other Australian capital cities. There’s also an hourly bus service to Canberra from Sydney airport.
If you don’t have a car, you can use Transport Canberra’s bus and light rail networks to get around the city easily.
If you’re a regular traveller, buy a reusable MyWay card. It will save you money and time. You can get one online through the Transport Canberra website, or in person at an Access Canberra Service Centre or MyWay Recharge Agent. You can add money onto your card when you apply and recharge when you run low of funds.
You can buy a single trip ticket from a ticket vending machine. These are located at every light rail stop, major bus interchange and the Canberra airport.
Light rail is a quick, direct way to travel between Civic and Gungahlin, through Braddon, Dickson and Lyneham.
Our clean and modern public bus network operates from several interchanges. These are in:
Each of the interchanges has frequent services to and from Civic and other town centres, and through suburbs. Blue Rapid or Red Rapid bus services run frequently between town centres and other destinations. They run at least every 15 minutes between 7am and 7pm on weekends and frequently at other times. These services have carry racks for bikes.
Canberra’s sense of space comes from having each of our town centres spread out, with parks and nature reserves in between. There isn’t a sprawling grid like you’ll find in many other cities.
We have the largest network of cycle paths in Australia. There are places to ride in Canberra where you’ll feel as though you’re out in the countryside, even when you’re close to the centre of the city. It’s a beautiful city to ride around.
