It’s a major airport that is only around a 15-minute drive from the major hotels in the centre of the city. 

Canberra also has daily flights from the major capital cities of Australia such as Melbourne, and Sydney. There are flight services from Virgin and Qantas.

Driving to Canberra via Sydney or Melbourne

Canberra is approximately 3.5 hours from Sydney by road and 6-7 hours from Melbourne. Both of the roads going to Canberra are high quality, dual carriage, interstate highways. 

If you’re an international traveler, by road is a good way to see the countryside. You can depart in a rental car of your choice or in your own car. 

Taking different routes by road to explore Australia is a good choice if you’re feeling adventurous. Furthermore, driving around Canberra is relatively easy due to high-quality roads.

Taking the Train from Sydney to Canberra

If you’re someone who enjoys train travel, the distance between Sydney and Canberra by train is six hours. The train is a daily service so travel on your chosen day.

Commuting on a Bus to Canberra

Regular bus services out of Sydney are available every hour. If you want to see the landscape without tiring yourself, traveling by bus is a good option, too!

This is also a convenient service if you’re traveling into or out of Sydney because the bus service links to Sydney Airport.
