Group Getaways by Rail

Rail travel invites you to sit back, relax and mingle with likeminded travellers; take in the passing scenery and enjoy delicious cuisine from the moment you step onboard.

Take a nostalgic journey aboard the iconic Spirit of the Outback as you head west into the heartland of Queensland’s outback. With blue summer skies and rich golden soil to be seen on the horizon from your panoramic window, it’s easy to relax as you journey from Brisbane to Longreach.


Relax in a spacious seat by day and lie-flat by night in Australia’s first RailBed, as you enjoy a journey aboard the Spirit of Queensland from Brisbane to Cairns.


Each and every experience will be one to remember!
