We are in Brisbane for a few months for work and are always looking for something to do for the weekend, we've rented a car a few times and been to Noosa, Coolum, Surfers, Coolangatta etc and are now interested in doing some trips on the train?
Is there anywhere we can get to by rail close enough for a weekend trip (leave Fri night or early Sat and back late Sun)? So far most places I've looked at on the QR website are too far away or the train only runs one of the weekend days.
We've seen a lot of beaches so seeing some of outback Australia would be fun if that exists in Queensland?
Any suggestions would be great!
