Coach to coast

Holiday Bus to boost fun factor

Summer breaks are beckoning young people in the Great Southern and the Holiday Bus will be back in January to boost the fun factor.

On Tuesdays and Thursdays from January 7 to 30, the GSDC-supported Holiday Bus will travel from Wagin down the Great Southern Highway to Albany and back again.

Young people from 14 to 18 years, and  younger children accompanied by a parent or guardian, can take the Holiday Bus to summer fun at the Albany cinema,town centre, Albany Leisure and Aquatic Centre, Middleton Beach or the skate park. The coach has room for skateboards, surfboards, body boards and bicycles.

Tickets are $5 for the round trip and anyone under 18 must have a consent form signed by a parent or guardian.

The GSDC supports the Holiday Bus service in partnership with local governments along the route, providing healthy holiday activities for Great Southern families who may have limited access to the coast during the summer break.

Holiday Bus services start at 7am in Wagin and travel via Woodanilling, Katanning, Broomehill, Tambellup, Cranbrook, Kendenup TransWA stop and Mount Barker to arrive in Albany at 10.15am. To return, the bus leaves Middleton Beach at 3.45pm and arrives in Wagin at 7pm.
