Where and when did you leave it

Not sure which route you were travelling on when you lost your property?

Try one of the following:

  • check the details of your ticket or your Opal account for route number, station or wharf information
  • use the Trip Planner to search for a similar trip to the one you took
  • phone 131 500 for assistance.

Your property will be more easily identified if you can describe it in detail. What brand, model, or colour was it? What’s its serial number, what was in it, how big was it, does it have any distinguishing features?
