How Bodhi Bus came to be…


Bodhi Bus is Australia’s first and only long distance Not for Profit Company with a Charitable and public benevolent institution status.

The Bodhi Bus was founded in 2009 and gets its name from the Bodhi Tree – a very large sacred fig tree where it is said that underneath it, Prince Siddartha (The First Buddha) attained his enlightenment.

Based in the regional town of Katherine, Northern Territory Australia, Bodhi Bus nestles itself right at the crossroads of remote Western Australia, Central Australia and The Gulf of Carpentaria. Home of the world-famous Katherine Gorge and Nitmiluk National Park, Katherine is the hub of many outlying Indigenous communities of which more than 18,000 people call home. On a broader scale, the total population of the area covered by Bodhi Bus is in excess of 45,000 people!

Travelling to places such as Gapuwiyak, Lajamanu, Numbulwar, Darwin and the various communities in between, The Bodhi Bus has the capacity to transport thousands of travellers every week!

Whether it be a business trip to Darwin, returning home to country, chartering a bus for a Footy trip or just connecting top end communities across this beautiful country, Bodhi Bus caters for it all!
