Bus Services

Hillcrest operates a fleet of modern, air-conditioned buses that are available for students travelling to and from our College each day. Hillcrest buses are equipped with three-point seat belts, and are installed with event cameras for added safety.

Our bus routes travel south to Northern NSW, north as far as Runaway Bay, and West to the Hinterland. We also provide trips to and from the Varsity Lakes Train Station, at a cost of $1.00 each way per student.

You can purchase a 10 trip Flexi-Card at a cost of $75.00. Each Flexi-Card allows a student 10 single one-way bus trips.

Discounted term passes are also available for one child, or a family, and represent great value for money. These can be purchased as either a one-way or return pass. A family pass allows all students in a family to travel at a discounted price. Even if your children do not need to travel on the bus every day, a term pass will often prove to be the cheaper financial option.

Bus applications are available from the Parent Lounge (login required).

Below are the different bus routes offered. Please note: these routes are subject to occasional change, and for the most up to date information please contact the Bus Manager’s Office.

Hillcrest's scheduled bus routes operate from Casuarina Beach, NSW, to Runaway Bay, to Pacific Pines, and west to the Hinterland. Seven bus routes cover these areas shown below. The maps show major stops as well as the approximate times for these stops. Each route has an AM and a PM map as they can be slightly different. Our routes are constantly being reviewed and tweaked, and these changes may not be reflected on the online maps, but our bus drivers will contact you should any changes occur.
