- Barneys Point Bridge to the foot of Sextons Hill.
- East Banora Point to cnr. Terranora Road & Fraser Drive.

To be eligible for free travel under the scheme a primary school student must reside outside a 1.6 km radius from the school attended or be required to walk 2.3 km or more because of natural or man made barriers or the nature of the street system.
Some students who do not meet the requirements of living outside the 1.6 km radius may still be eligible.
BUS PASSES & BUS SAFETY
Click here for bus timetables - select “Banora Point Primary school” and press GO.
Students are required to have their bus passes with them daily - it is suggested that the pass is attached securely to the student's school bag.
Buses provide a safe means of transport to and from school, however behaviour of children on buses is sometimes a concern. A potentially dangerous part of the journey is crossing the road at the home end of the journey. Please support safe bus travel by:
- talking to your children about safe responsible behaviour on buses.
- reinforcing the road safety messages delivered at school.
- stressing the need to wait until the bus has gone before crossing a road.
- waiting on the same side of the road when meeting children at the homeward end of the journey.
