Greyhound Australia is Australia's only long national distance coach operator running services in all mainland states and territories. It is owned by KordaMentha (85%) and the Chapman Group (15%).
Greyhound Coaches was formed in 1928 by Russell Penfold with a service between Toowoomba and Brisbane. In 1962 Greyhound commenced interstate operations and by the end of the decade was operating services to Sydney, Melbourne and Adelaide with Perth and Darwin added in the 1970s creating the first national coach company.
In November 1989 the Penfold family sold Greyhound Coaches to Stateliner with the exception of the Brisbane - Gold Coast and Brisbane - Toowoomba services that were sold separately. In 1992 Greyhound, Pioneer and Bus Australia merged with the combined operation rebranded Greyhound Pioneer Australia.
In February 1999 Queensland Coach Company was formed by Greyhound Pioneer Australia to body 94 Scania coaches over five years to renew the fleet. Originally an alliance was formed with bodybuilder Alan B Denning with it proposed the Galaxy body design be used. But following the collapse of the Clifford Corporation, the rights to the Austral Pacific Majestic body were purchased. In July 2000 Queensland Coach Company ceased trading and was put into administration.
In March 2000 Greyhound Pioneer Australia entered discussions with McCafferty's Coaches about a potential merge. Subsequently Premier Motor Service made an successful takeover bid for the business. In September 2000 a takeover bid from McCafferty's was accepted.
