Public Transport

Hoadley Hide’s Mission to Mars Base of Operations is at Mataranka Scout Camp,  about two hours drive from Sunbury Railway Station.

That means to join our Mission to Mars, you can catch public transport to Sunbury Station and we will get you get to the mission site from there.

Access to the “Space Shuttle Bus” service is $25 and you need to select the “Recruit: Sunbury Bus” option on your event registration.

Sunbury Railway station has regular services on the Sunbury Line operated by Metro. You can find the timetable and trip planner at the Public Transport Victoria website.

Sign in for teams at the Mission Site will be commencing at 09:30am and will close at 11am on Friday 19th April 2019. We will be running a shuttle service from Sunbury Railway Station at 08:00am to transport you to site.

If you are doing the Venturing Skills Course on Thursday night (“Recruit: VS Course“) or just staying overnight as you’re coming from elsewhere in regional Victoria (“Recruit: Sleep over“) the Shuttle Bus is included.

Public Transport Victoria are undertaking major rail works across Victoria during Easter 2019. As a result, Bus Replacement Services are running over the weekend. If you need to take public transport, then you will need to arrive at Sunbury on Thursday night and stay overnight at the hall.

Please see Autumn Construction Blitz for more information on these outages.

The fee to stay overnight at Sunbury on Thursday is the same price as catching the shuttle on Friday, so you won’t be out of pocket.

On the Monday, we will be transporting everyone back to Sunbury Scout Hall and you can catch the bus replacement services back to Southern Cross Railway Station.
