QLD Rail, Brisbane: 14 reviews and 8 photos

  Tilt Train in action...
by Tripack

If you're planning to head to the North, take the Tilt Train till Rockhampton or Cairns, this trip will be faster and more comfortable than a bus journey. The price is very competitve for the high level of service.
If you have a student card ISIC, you could get an half price ticket -> great value.

I was impressed by the quality of service and features of this express train, with aboard meals, music, confortable seat, enough room for legs, clean, quiet, TV with live view from the loco,...
In one word all you couldn't get in a bus... and you will arrive in better shape.

Highly recommended, I like it as much as my Swiss trains...
