DEN­NING RE­UNION

More than 150 peo­ple gath­ered at Aca­cia Ridge Ho­tel in Bris­bane on June 17 to mark 60 years since the first Den­ning bus. In many ways, Den­ning is a sym­bol of the golden era of coaches in Australia. This was an age when many of the ‘roads’ in cen­tral and north­ern Australia were un­tamed by sealed sur­faces.

OMEO SOLD

Dyson Group ac­quired O’Con­nell’s Omeo Bus Ser­vice, also a fam­ily-owned busi­ness, after al­most 60 years of op­er­a­tion. The O’Con­nell’s op­er­a­tion con­sists of the Omeo and sur­round­ing area-based school runs and the Alps Link Bus Ser­vice be­tween Omeo and Bright, which Dyson Group con­tin­ues to run. A fam­ily owned and op­er­ated bus com­pany founded in 1952, the Dyson Group op­er­ates more than 480 buses and coaches while em­ploy­ing some 800 staff in met­ro­pol­i­tan Mel­bourne, re­gional Vic­to­ria and NSW. It op­er­ates tours and char­ter, air­port trans­fers, school runs, and met­ro­pol­i­tan com­muter ser­vices.
