Getting to Canberra

If you’re a Sydneysider, why not take a Murray’s Coach? It’ll set you back anywhere between $25 and $45 each way, depending on how soon you book and whether or not you’re eligible for concession.  See here for timetable information.

Coming from further afield? Why not fly in to Canberra's (newly international) airport. Once you arrive, you can catch an Airport Express Bus to the city centre for $12 one way or $20 return. See here for timetable information.  

 

Where to stay? YHA!

YHA Canberra City is offering people staying in town for Noted Festival a 10% discount on their bookings. What's more, the YHA makes a great base. You'll be within 10–15 minutes' walking distance of most festival events and close to the Civic Bus Interchange for anything further away.

Before the discount, YHA dorms start at $33 a night and private rooms start at $103. Bookings must be made over the phone to get the discounted rate. Find out more about how to get the discount here. You can call YHA on (02) 6248 9155. 

 

Out and about

While the majority of Noted's events are in the Canberra CBD area, a few are a little further away. ACTION Buses are Canberra's primary form of public transport.

The cheapest way to travel on ACTION is with a MyWay card, which will set you back $5. You can buy them at most newsagencies and supermarkets. For an adult, bus trips start at $2.36 one-way and are capped at $9.00 per weekday and $5.45 on weekends. Find out more about ACTION buses here.

Alternatively, you might prefer to grab an Uber, which are legal in Canberra.
