The Tilt Train
Discover Queensland's tropical delights in comfort aboard the country's most innovative train, the Tilt Train. Traveling between Brisbane and Cairns twice a week and Brisbane and Rockhampton six times a week in each direction, the Tilt Train is a comfortable and convenient way to access the many tourist destinations of Queensland.

The Tilt Train is fast becoming the most popular way to explore Queensland's wealth of coastal destinations in comfort and style. After all, the Tilt Train is Australia's most modern train and makes it so easy to reach the gateways to great holidays. Some of the fantastic holiday experiences include whale watching at Hervey Bay, spectacular Fraser Island, the Great Barrier Reef off Lady Elliot Island, and turtle hatching near Bundaberg. Traveling along the coast is extremely comfortable and quietly relaxing aboard the Tilt Train.

Passengers aboard the Brisbane to Cairns trains enjoy business style seating, with personal entertainment screens, laptop connections and personal power supply, and the option of seated meal service or dining in the Club Car. If you're planning a shorter journey between South-East and Queensland's Central Coast, the Tilt Train can connect you with most major holiday destinations. And this service offers you the choice of Business or Economy seating.
