  • Is the pick up from the greyhound bus stop still running? Looks like the only greyhound bus stops in Agnes Water at 3:15am

    Due to the late arrival of the bus and the small number of passengers, our shuttle no longer operates. It is only a few minutes walk to the hostel. We arrange an after-hours check in. Please contact our reception the morning of your departure.

  • HI! I am taking the train north from Brisbane. Which railway station do I get off for Agnes Waters. And do you have a pick up service? Cheers Paul

    The nearest train station is Miriam Vale which is about 45 minutes out of town. However if you depart at Bundaberg, you should be able to pick up the Greyhound bus service. This service, currently arrives in Agnes Water just after midnight.
