How to Reach

By train

Trains run several times per day to and from Melbourne's Southern Cross and Flinders St Station, via Sale and Tarragon.

V/Line and Premier coaches have connections directly to Sydney, Canberra and the New South Wales South Coast.

By car

Bairnsdale is situated on the Princes Hwy (A1) approximately 3.5 hours east of Melbourne. If you are following the coastal route between Melbourne and Sydney you will pass through the town. If you are heading to Bairnsdale and Gippsland from Sydney, the route through Canberra, the Monaro through to Cann River will save you time over the coastal route. A scenic (but much slower) diversion is through Delegate.
