Hi, There is no public bus to the top of Mount Victoria. The closest bus still requires a 15 min walk to the top. You can drive to the lookout in your car, as there’s a car park for you to park in. Thanks 😊

They are not easy to find. And they are not all close to each other. The cheapest way to find them is to purchase a book or map. I booked a tour.
