About Our Luxury Coaches

Port Stephens Coaches has an extensive fleet of vehicles allowing us to cater to your specific requirements. Our 5-Star coaches are predominately used on longer excursions, day trips to Sydney and are perfect for multiple day excursions to Canberra, Gold Coast and Bathurst. Our 5-star coaches have restrooms.

These vehicles are the most expensive to hire. Some schools match a 5-Star and a 4-Star coach together to meet their capacity needs.

Our 64 seat 5-Star coach offers 2 classes and staff the opportunity to travel together for an outing. Please note there is a premium for over-sized vehicles and RMS restrictions on where they can go. For example the 64 seat coach cannot access Jenolan Caves.

Our 4-Star coaches have been specially designed with the school market in mind.

They feature cloth seat belts; seat belts; DVD player and are high capacity vehicles with 53, 57 and 65 seat configurations. This can mean saving the cost of a whole bus across a large number of students.

4-Star coaches are mostly used for schools wanting seat belts as a standard requirement and for longer day excursions to Oakvale Farm, Fighter World, Australian Reptile Park, Sydney and Canberra. They are great for camp transfers, school sports, intensive swimming and short day excursions.

Our School Buses are used for any excursion in the local area including Blackbutt Reserve, Newcastle Museum and the Civic Theatre. They are the most cost effective buses to hire between between 9.00am and 3.00pm and are also available for hire outside of school hours.

We also have buses available in Newcastle for requirements before and after school.
