58 and 63 has the Futurebus rear ends.

I have a feeling it could be 6367AO being a Scania L94UB from CDC Ballarat depot.

Sunbus will no longer be operating runs 064 and 065. Will now be operated by CDC (was Buslink), by what looks to be Volgren CR228L(s). The Go Noosa contract was awarded to CDC today who will now operate the 064 and 065 free bus routes. https://cdcqueensland.com.au/go-noosa-contract-awarded-to-cdc-so...
