Our aim is to give you a value for money, efficient, hassle free mode of travel to some of the best snow areas in Victoria. We can do it with services and prices that will make you want to leave your car at home.
How do we do it? Our new online booking system, our transport experience, our well-equipped coaches, and our reliable and skilled drivers make it all possible.
Our up-to-the-minute online booking and payment facilities are quick and easy to use and, we are proud to say, offer a new, modern way of considering your snow visiting options in Victoria, with many cost-saving choices on offer. Links, travel choices, information retrieval and distribution are simple to arrange – especially helpful for group bookings. Our reservations phone number operates from May – October and our staff are happy to answer any of your questions via email any time of the year within 36 hours.
Our experience in providing quality coach travel and knowledge about the north east countryside is extensive because HothamBus is owned and operated by NorthEast Coachlines Pty Ltd, based in Wangaratta. Born in Mount Beauty, owner Dale Ledingham has a working background in forestry, logistics and tourism. We conduct sightseeing, cycling and winery tours to Rutherglen, Milawa, Bright and Beechworth and have been involved in the travel industry in both Australia and New Zealand for over 20 years. This makes us snow specialists, not only in the coach travel industry, but in the spectacular North East Victorian snowfields.
Our coaches are top of the range air-conditioned Swedish Scania tourist coaches. They are roomier and comfortable with only 50 reclining seats equipped with footrests and seatbelts. And passengers have the added convenience of restrooms and two coach doors.
Our Drivers have been known to us for around 15 years and each has developed skills driving in extreme road conditions of snow, desert and outback Australia. All have both Heavy Vehicle Licences and VicRoads Harzardous Area Authority, and of course are people friendly!
