Bringing Christmas to Lake Mac one stop at a time!
If Santa’s reindeer can’t pull the sleigh on Christmas Eve, he’d be hard pressed to find a better option to travel than Newcastle’s Christmas Bus! Bringing Christmas cheer to Newcastle and Lake Macquarie. Grab your family and hop on board.
Decorated inside and out with glittery Christmas decorations, and playing Christmas songs, this is the only way to travel in December. The Christmas bus has been spreading Christmas joy for over 20 years. With routes all over Newcastle and Lake Mac, you’ll be sure to find a stop near you.
Christmas bus timetable
With numerous routes and times across our region from Swansea to Glendale to Customs House you’ll be riding the bus in no time. Take a look at the timetable and plan which bus route works for you, and surprise your family. The Christmas bus runs between 1st December and 25th December.
