TransLink provides one single public transport network covering south-east Queensland from Gympie North/Noosa to Coolangatta and west to Helidon.
Just one TransLink ticket will take you wherever you want to go on buses, trains and ferries within the new system. Zones, fares and concessions will be standardised across the system, providing one set of rules for everyone.
The Brisbane River ferry system is a wonderful way to get around and it docks at the University of Queensland. TransLink ferry map and zones
It's also very easy to catch a bus on campus, cross the Elanore Schonell bridge, and ride into the city or head out to any of the southern suburbs.
And remember, Australians drive on the other side of the road. When crossing the road always look right, then left, then right again. It's best to use pedestrians crossings where possible, Australians are more respectful of pedestrians at crossings than American drivers.
