Queensland Rail Review

Queensland Rail provides a suburban rail service to Brisbane as well as service to Noosa and the Gold Coast. There are several lines throughout the city including one that goes straight to Brisbane Airport. The trains are very well kept and have lots of room for sitting and standing. There are toilets in a few of the train cars. On the AirTrain line there are racks above the seats providing a great place to keep you luggage.

One of the cheapest and quickest ways to get to Surfer’s Paradise from Brisbane is taking the Gold Coast QR Train. This train starts at the Brisbane Airport making it extremely easy to go from the Airport to the Gold Coast. The train then travels through central Brisbane before heading to the Gold Coast. Unfortunately, there is no train station within Surfers Paradise so you have to get off at the closest stop, Nerang Station. This station is about 12km east of Surfers Paradise so to get there you will either have to take a public transit bus or a taxi cab.
