GETTING THERE

Getting to Sri Lanka from Australia and the UK is super easy, especially as you can only fly into Colombo!

Sri Lankan Airlines (Qantas Frequent Flyer Partner) operate daily services Melbourne - Colombo. Like many cricket tour destinations the most affordable way to travel, from Australia, is often the long way via the Middle East. Multiple daily flights operate to Colombo by all full service and low-cost airlines. South East Asian airlines all have multiple daily flights through their respective hubs, Singapore, Kuala Lumpur, Bangkok, Hong Kong, as well as flights through mainland China. Research all flights to Colombo on:

SRI LANKA RAILWAYS

When you join our Australian Cricket Tour to Sri Lanka 2022 we include rail travel (for hotel tours) as required for all journeys between Colombo, Kandy, Galle, and the Tea Country. These are standard 'free for all' seats, with reserved seats when available. All rail travel will be confirmed once we know the Cricket Schedule.

LONG-DISTANCE BUSES

There should be little need to need a long-distance bus, but these can be useful. Buses of varying standards operate around the clock to/from Colombo and from Kandy and Galle the journey is 2-4 hours. In years passed, long distances buses have been used for 'last minute' decisions or need to reach Colombo when you have just missed a train. If you want to take the bus, please use this very useful site taking note of the 'colour coded fares'
