Hey everyone, I'll be going up to Newcaslte from Sydney by train, and i was told this was the last stop. Is it possible to catch a bus at this same station (scott n watt intersection) to get to byron bay? Also, would anyone know a website where i might find some resourceful information abut the bus system in newcastle. thanks for any help
You can get a country link train (and bus for the last section) from Broadmeadow (just before Newcastle) to Byron Bay so you would have to get a train from Newcastle (scott st) to Broadmeadow to meet the countrylink train.
www.131500.com.au gives info in Sydeny public transport including trains to Broadmeadow and Newcastle.
http://www.newcastlebuses.info/ Has info on the Newcastle bus and ferry system.
Do you have to stop at Newcastle? I am wondering because I am pretty sure that you can take a train from Sydney that will take you all the way to Byron Bay without changing to a bus.....it will also stop at Broadmeadow. But the best idea is to go directly if you don't need to be in Newcastle.
Iandsmith is a local resident in Newcastle and would be able to give you more information about that area if you send him a vtmail.
