A Quintessentially Queensland Journey

Operating twice weekly from the Queensland capital of Brisbane to the historic central western Queensland town of Longreach, the popular Spirit of the Outback is a 1,300-kilometre journey through a quintessentially Queensland landscape. Renowned for its vibrant social atmosphere and the friendly hospitality offered on board, the Spirit of the Outback is a 24-hour journey into the heart of Queensland's history-laden heritage.

Boasting a themed restaurant serving a selection of Australian meals and a licenced on-board lounge designed to encourage interaction with fellow rail guests, the Spirit of the Outback veers inland from the coastal city of Rockhampton to take in the historic towns of Blackwater, Emerald and Barcaldine before reaching its final destination, Longreach.
