The Queensland Coastal Pass is designed for sales to overseas visitors of Australia. Proof of non-Australian residency may be required – passport, drivers licence, home address, etc can be used to verify this.
When booking you can select a first date of travel that is up to 6 months in the future. Travel must commence within one month from this anticipated start date, otherwise the pass expires and becomes non-refundable.
The Queensland Coastal Pass includes unlimited stopover in a single direction of travel over a one or two month period, which starts on the day the pass is validated (first day of actual travel).
You will receive an exchange voucher which, upon presentation at a Travel Centre or Ticket Office exchange location in Australia and prior to commencing your first journey, you will be given your actual travel pass. You will receive the exchange voucher by mail so please allow 3 to 5 business days for your order to be processed prior to shipping.
The pass covers premium economy seats on the Spirit of Queensland only when booked within 7 days of travel, subject to availability. Bookings made outside of 7 days prior to travel incur an upgrade amount to be paid by the pass holder.
Passholders may upgrade to business seats on the Tilt Trains (Rockhampton and Bundaberg), RailBeds on the Spirit of Queensland and any available sleeping berths upon payment of the applicable difference in fares.
Travel directly from Brisbane to Cairns (or vice versa) is not permitted. A minimum of one break of journey is compulsory.
You will receive the exchange voucher by mail. You can select from the available shipping options during checkout. Please allow sufficient time to receive your pass before your departure.
Seat reservations must be made in advance as the pass itself does not guarantee a seat. A reservation for each individual sector of travel is necessary to obtain a valid travel ticket.
