*Blue Bus Tours is based in Redland Bay. We are located southeast of Brisbane on the beautiful Redlands Coast in Queensland, Australia.
Our tours start and end in the Redlands and we pick up in locations within the Redland City area. We do not do home pick ups.
If you do not live in the Redlands, we may be able to arrange a pick-up location closer to you but this will depend on the direction our tour is heading. For example, if our tour destination is north of Brisbane we could arrange to pick you up at one of the service centres on the northside on the main highway. Otherwise, we can pick up in Roma St, Brisbane or Brisbane Airport.
The cost of your travel to the pick up point is your responsibility.
Alternatively, you might like to consider finding accommodation in the Redlands the night before and after the tour.
Please contact us for suggestions.
