Do it before it disappears! The famed Sunlander train runs the coastal route between Brisbane and Cairns, and for 60 years has captured the romantic imagination of those who’ve taken the beautifully scenic 31-hour journey. The Sunlander is due to be replaced in 2014 by an upgraded tilt train. While it remains in service, it’s one of the country’s great rail journeys, and this is your last chance to experience the famed Queenslander Class service, with sleeper accommodation, on-board restaurant-quality meals and entertainment.

The details

Queensland Rail will be running special ‘Farewell the Sunlander’ offers to celebrate the end of the road for the Sunlander, including reduced price upgrades to Queenslander Class – check the website for current deals.
