This trip is not your 5 star by any means.  The 17 hour long train ride out to Charleville covers some of South East Queensland's famous trails.

The train is a seat only and over night.  If you're looking for a quick escape this package won't start up till after 29th September.  If you're keen to go and experience a little touch of the Outback, give me a call and I'll check the dates.
