Ride the rails through our country.

Queensland Rail operates The Westlander into our region, travelling across the Great Dividing Range to Toowoomba, through the rich farmlands of the Darling Downs, before continuing onto its final destination, Charleville.


Prefer to take the passenger seat?

Soak up the scenery onboard one of the coaches that service the region. Regular bus services operate between Brisbane, Toowoomba, Warwick, Stanthorpe and beyond, with connections to air, rail and local buses. Murrays Coaches, Crisps Coaches, Greyhound Australia, Con-X-ion, Bus Queensland and Palmers Coaches.


All roads lead to Southern Queensland Country, including the Cunningham, New England, Warrego, Leichhardt, D’Aguilar, Brisbane Valley and Gore Highways and the Great Inland Way and the Adventure Way.

Our well-maintained highways and quiet country backroads make driving holidays one of the best ways to enjoy your Southern Queensland Country escape.
