Travel arrangements to your regional campus can be made by connecting plane, train, or bus from Sydney or Melbourne. Depending on your arrival time, you may have to make a stopover in Sydney or Melbourne and arrange your own accommodation. There are no direct international flights to regional campuses.

Once you have confirmed your travel details be sure to contact the International Student Liaison Officer on your campus. A University representative will meet you on your arrival in Bathurst, Orange, Port Macquarie, Albury-Wodonga or Wagga Wagga and take you to your campus and help you settle in.
