Real Aussie Says:
For accommodation you can either book ahead via the Stray Australia web app or your guide can help you book and you just pay as you go. On the Brisbane to Sydney bus pass we recommend you tell us your dates of travel. This is due to Byron Bay getting really busy with accommodation during high season. We recommend you book the nights in at least a week in advance. You are not required to hop off the bus – feel free to use your pass like a tour and complete the itinerary in its ‘minimum days’. Either way you'll have a great time!
