Standard Luggage

You are welcome to bring one item of hand luggage with you, weighing up to 7kgs. This should be no larger than your standard flight carry-on luggage. You are also welcome to bring one item of checked luggage, weighing no more than 20kg.


Additional and Over-sized Luggage

If space permits, extra and oversized luggage can be accommodated for a $20 fee. Luggage weighing over 15kg will be classified as Heavy Luggage and must be clearly labelled as such—please visit the luggage stand at our Booking Centres to obtain a tag. For safety reasons, luggage weighing more than 20kg will need to be separated into two separate bags, noting that the second bag will be charged the applicable fee.


Bicycles* can be carried on coach services and AvonLink and MerredinLink train services. These do need to be pre-booked and will count as additional luggage and charged the applicable fee.


If there is room available, packaged surfboards** under 2m can be carried on coach services and Australind, AvonLink and MerredinLink train services. Surfboards can only be booked on the day of travel and will count as additional luggage and charged the applicable fee. 


Please note that space restrictions mean only two fold-up bikes can be taken onboard each Prospector train services, and only when contained in an approved carry bag which should be no more than 79cm long x 59cm high x 36cm wide. Standard bikes cannot be taken onboard the Prospector.
