Brisbane to Bundaberg - how?

Asking this for a friend who can't ask herself because she only has internet access at work and this site is blocked!

She wants to know the best way to get from Brisbane to Bundaberg - bus or train? Also how long will it take and how much will it cost?

Apologies if this is a stupid / obvious question, but please don't shoot the messenger! :)

Cheers...

Greyhound Bus: $68 (9 hours, 40 minutes)

Tilt Train: $62.50 (4 and a half hours)

Qantas flight: $119 (55 minutes)

It's up to her, but I'd definitely skip the bus! The tilt train is great, just make sure she takes a good book. Otherwise, she can fly and be up there quick as a flash. :)

Hire a motor van and drive up...you can stay overnight where you choose..Some companies will let you relocate a vehicle..

Not sure whether friend is hosteller...but often the hostels have shared trips and backpacker buses...the hostels are loaded with this sort of information..

Australia is fabulous for this sort of travel...

Definitely skip the bus! If you're on a budget, the train would probably be the best option. The trip is longer, but the ride is quite comfortable and pleasant. I've been told the scenery isn't much to look at though. Flying is more expensive, but you can sometimes get very cheap flights. It would be worth looking up Virgin Blue, Jetstar and Qantas and comparing the prices.
