Travelling from A to B quickly and easily

You’ll want to explore your local town, city or even the whole of Australia while you study. Depending on where you’re going and where you’re coming from, your transport options include buses, trains, taxis, ferries, planes, cars, bikes and of course, walking.

You can see what public transport services are available and how much they cost by checking state government websites like Transport NSW or Public Transport Victoria.

If you choose to drive or cycle in Australia, you’ll need to understand the rules and meet any requirements before hitting the road.

Student travel discounts

You might be eligible for international student discounts (concessions) on public transport, but this will depend on where you live.

ACT You get a concession by showing your student ID card or applying for an ACTION Students Concession Card
NSW You generally don’t get transport concessions, but some education institutions offer MyMulti passes, which give you discounts on buses, trains, light rail and most ferries in Sydney
NT If you’re a university or VET student, you get unlimited bus travel for three hours for $1 when you show your student ID card
QLD You get a concession if you’re a full-time student (enrolled in a course approved by Centrelink for Austudy purposes)
SA You get a concession by showing your student ID card
VIC You may be eligible for a concession card if you’re studying as part of an approved overseas exchange program, have refugee status or hold an Australian Development Scholarship
TAS You get the same travel concessions as local students
WA You are eligible for concessions if you’re a full-time student
