it looks to me as if travel by train Friday and leave Sunday ? (will have to 'really' look tho)

how far is it from Canberra rail station to ANU and is there a bus that time of night on a Sunday, If by train I'm leaving and arriving (in that order) Stathfield.

Is it feasible Public Transport or should I be looking at car travel ??

any links or previous experience welcomed

The railway station is in the inner south whereas ANU is just north of the city, which makes them in the same very general region but not in walking distance.

Canberra weekend buses are like weekday buses only worse. The railway station is on weekend route 980

though 938 will get you into the area if you are familiar with it (probably not though).

There is a good chance you would be able to get a lift to the station with someone heading home in that direction.

You might also look at coaches/buses, which depart from the Jolimont Centre not far from ANU.

They aren't obviously archived yet - I'll ask Shaun. However all scoresheets were collected so the full set, not just the broadcast games, will be available at some point.

Right, the live games arent archived also!? As in the ones on the DGT boards that were at the ANU open.

Is there no link to re-view these games?
