PLEASE NOTE: Substitute Bus Service
Due to the current COVID-19 outbreak in Victoria and subsequent border restrictions, we will be operating a coach replacement service for The Overland through to Wednesday, 7 July, when the situation will be reviewed. The coach replacement service will operate on the same schedule and service the same stops as The Overland.
