We encourage Active Travel

Most CHS students are active travellers and walk, cycle, scoot or skate to and from school. We encourage this as part of an active and healthy lifestyle. There are numerous cycling paths in and around the school for students to safely use when travelling together before and after school.

In addition, there are numerous convenient public transport options surrounding Coburg High School.


  • The Number 19 tram runs up Sydney Road from North Coburg to the city.
  • The Number 1 tram runs from East Coburg to South Melbourne Beach. It runs up Nicholson, Lygon and Swanston streets.
