There’s always something happening with Kangaroo Bus Lines! Keep up with our latest events and news updates, and check out our handy travel tips to make your next trip run smoothly.

Today we’re exploring the top six reasons Brisbane is a fantastic option.

  1. Convenience. If your workplace is located near the city (like so many are) then there is no destination more convenient for you or your valued employees. Why not
  2. ...

When you’re planning a corporate event there are a lot of items to consider. Whether you’re focused on a guest list, activities or food there is one essential part of the equation that needs to be determined right away: location! Selecting a great location for your event is where all the fun starts. Once you’ve determined your location the rest of the corporate event details tend to flow directly off that.  But where do you get started when scouting locations for your event? A good recommendation is a great jumping off point.

The New Year has seen an exciting expansion for Kangaroo Bus Lines with the opening of our new Sunshine Coast depot centrally located near Maroochydore.

2015 has been a devastating year for the residents of the Quilpie Shire.  Drought is widespread and hardship is just a fact of life for those outback battlers struggling to survive. 

This south-west slice of Queensland also known as ‘Heartbreak Corner’ has failed to receive much needed funding from the Federal Governments’ Drought Communities Program. Neighbouring shires have benefitted from $1.5 million in government assistance each.

The outlook for Christmas in this destitute community was looking bleak. That was until Jeff’s Xmas Run decided to pay the town a visit....

Kangaroo Bus Lines have been providing the cruising industry with transportation services for over 8 years.  Quite often we get asked what exactly it is we do when a ship calls to port in either Brisbane or on the Sunshine Coast.  With this in mind we thought we’d give you a little insight into the world of cruise shore excursions from our perspective.

If you’ve ever cruised to the South Pacific or somewhere similar then you’d know that when you call at a port there are a variety of tours and experiences available to pre-book.  By booking a shore excursion it saves you the hassle of...

Most well-known theatre productions are held in larger concert halls located in metropolitan regions which means access to these events can prove difficult.  In Brisbane for example, musical phenomenon’s such as Les...
