Getting There & Away
Most travellers fly through, as the Princes Hwy passes just south of the town. Bonang Rd heads north towards the Snowy River and Errinundra National Parks, and Marlo Rd follows the Snowy River south to Marlo and continues along the coast to Cape Conran Coastal Park.
Orbost is the start/end point of the East Gippsland Rail Trail.
There are three buses a day from Melbourne ($48.40, 5½ hours) via Bairnsdale ($20.40, one hour 40 minutes). If you're heading east, there's a daily bus to Mallacoota ($23.40, three hours) via Genoa.
