Cook Family Adventure

If you’re after a great family holiday idea, look no further than the fastest thing on two rails. Queensland Rail Travel’s Tilt Train is a top way to travel up and down our beautiful coastline.

A journey from Brisbane’s Roma Street to Rockhampton takes just under 8 hours. But instead of being stuck behind the steering wheel, you can sink back into comfortable seats; catch a movie; listen to music; read a book; watch the scenery, and get served delicious meals by smiling QR staff. Head up to the Galley for a snack or coffee.

Once you arrive in Rocky, make sure you factor in a visit to the astounding Capricorn Caves. The caves have been millions of years in the making, but lie an easy 30 minutes’ drive from the city.

Stay in comfortable, self-contained cabins on-site and plan a few days of fantastic activities – including cave tours, rock climbing and abseiling. Keep an eye on the Capricorn Caves website for their regular “Opera in the Caves” event. The Underground Opera Company performs in spectacular Cathedral Cave, twice a year.
