Take to the Tracks in Queensland, Australia

As you gaze out your window and witness the sheer size and beauty of the Queensland landscape, say a mental "thank you!" to the Queensland Government, who in 1865 recognised that rail was the best way to provide regular, efficient access to people, places and goods in areas that were otherwise difficult to reach. The Queensland rail system boasts a total route network of over 8,000 kilometres, which means that wherever you’re planning to holiday there’s no better way to see it than by rail. It’s a great way to get from A to B and also for exploring. The Explorer Pass, for example, gives you unlimited stops from Brisbane to Cairns, making it the perfect way to travel almost the entire East Coast of Queensland. It also allows you to head into the Outback, taking in centres like Mt Isa and Longreach. Rail provides a fascinating insight into this country, so if your journey is just as important as your destination, then rail is a great choice.
