Curious which bus service this is? Am looking for one up from Brisbane on Thursday, but the options are either $70 ow or a train/bus combo at under $20. (Flight back to SYD on Sunday means I only need ow, if the deal is based on rtn tix.)

Thanks! Greyhound didn't occur to me. Looks like a much better choice!

I've used them and a competitor that's out of business now, over the years, and never had a problem. I'll be on the 1100 service Brisbane-Noosa Junction on Friday and the 1240 service back to Brisbane on Sunday.

Looks good. I have driven past Australia Zoo a few times but never ventured in. Count me in for everything on Saturday! And probably a late starter on Friday, but there nonetheless.

Yes ... and back then I did not even know about FT.

It's a strange (and costly) experience cancelling flights; something I have rarely done ...

Booking site live

We have set up a web based reservation system to book and pay for activities.
Click the Oz Fest 15 booking link.. The cost includes the Eventbrite fee of about $8.50~$9.00 per ticket
Post 3 for details

We are using a different booking service this year. It does not allow us to ask your FT handle, so if we can't work out who you are we will send an email/PM (But Oz Fest knows most of you )
