Default Brisbane Train Website

I have googled this but was just wondering which is the best site to use to map a journey out/journey times/changes etc etc.

The journey I am looking at is Victoria Point (ish) to Underwood, it may be totally NON doable but thought I would have a look all the same.

Thanks in advance

Hi Louise

There is no station at Victoria Point, so it's not a journey that you would be able to do on the train. The closest station is as Cleveland, but the train does not go from there to Underwood - it would mean changing somewhere. It would be a VERY long journey!! Bus from VP to Cleveland, then the slow train, change trains and back south down to Underwood.

Love

Rudi

Yes, that's a tricky one. Difficult by both train and bus. It is doable in theory but would take a while and a bit of messing about.

Probably would need to look at a taxi although it gets a bit expensive.

I would have thought a bus would service that route from Victoria Point to Garden City or Griffith Uni. You could then change to get a bus to underwood.

That sounds about right, with about 80 minutes total travel time. One or two bus changes depending on time of day.
The direct route by car is 27km and about 30 minutes.


The train would be from Cleveland to Kuraby, about 90 minutes to 2 hours travel time, with one train change.

Do you know what Victoria Point and Underwood have in common...
