Heading to the sunshine state?

NSW TrainLink runs daily train and coach services to Brisbane and Casino with connecting coaches to the Gold Coast.

So sit back, relax, take some time to yourself, enjoy the view and let NSW TrainLink take you there.

Enjoy the Gold Coast's white sandy beaches and have some fun at the theme parks – Sea World, Warner Bros Movieworld, Dreamworld and Wet'n'Wild. Sample the Carrara markets and perhaps grab a bargain or two. Indulge in world class shopping, fine restaurants and a vibrant nightlife.

Dreamworld is the largest theme park in Australia with everything from heart pumping thrill rides to the very gentle kids rides, then keep the fun going at Movieworld. Splash into the water rides at Wet'n'Wild, or get an up-close view of the creatures that call the ocean home at Sea World.

Get back to nature and walk through world heritage listed rainforest, cuddle koalas and feed kangaroos at the Currumbin Wildlife Sanctuary. Revive in the cool temperatures of a magical world of tropical rainforests and mountain villages and follow well marked walking tracks to natural swimming holes and glowworm caves.
