From Here to There!!!

Will be staying with friends in Wurtulla in September, and would like to meet up with an internet friend who lives in Ipswich.

Can some kind person give me the approximate distance between the two places, and a rough idea of traveling time, either by train or coach.

Wurtulla is great - you will have good time there. You will definitely get a locals perspective on life in oz.

If you are staying with friends you would probably be best to get them to give you a lift to Beerwah Train Station - or if they are really nice they could take you to Caboolture. Beerwah is a 20 minute drive and Caboolture is about 1/2 an hour - 3/4 hour depending on traffic.

From Beerwah you can get a train to Caboolture and then change to the Ipswich line. It will take about an hour and a half with change over time. Look at www.transinfo.qld.gov.au for a definitely journey. The journey planner function will actually let you put in the street addresses of your friends and give you an exact method of getting there via public transport.

Make sure you travel to Ipswich during the day - I don't like to be around that train station at night.

hope this is helpful!

To give you an idea, about 130 kilometres, two hours by car depending on traffic.
