The journey starts aboard the 10:00 Opal service from Town Hall or Central at 10:15 to Moss Vale. If you’d prefer to leave Sydney earlier, there is a train that departs Town Hall at 08:33 and Central at 08:48 that arrives in Moss Vale at 11:13. You can find the timetable for both these services at:
Aboard the 10:15 from Central, you’ll arrive at Moss Vale at 12:40 where the train terminates. Tap off with your Opal card as you leave the station and cross the main street (Argyle Street) of Moss Vale to the law courts opposite the station. Here you’ll find a bus stop. Wait here for the 13.03 bus service to Bundanoon. Route # 813. This bus service is provided by Berrima Buslines
