Queensland Rail Travel westlander

Discover the pioneering spirit of Australia’s Outback with a journey aboard The Westlander.

This scenic journey from Brisbane travels across the Great Dividing Range and through the rich farmlands of the Darling Downs before arriving in Charleville, the largest town in south-west Queensland. Enjoy a comfortable journey in a choice of sleeper or seat, with a welcoming club car offering appetising meals and the chance to meet fellow travellers.

An array of Outback experiences awaits in and around Charleville, including the new Cosmos Centre, a dedicated stargazing observatory; the Royal Flying Doctor’s Service Base; and the opal fields of the south-west.

The Westlander will resume limited services from Saturday 27th June 2020. Return to full services will resume from Sunday 19th September 2020.
