Planning a vacation to Australia with limited time? If you’d like to venture off the established tourist tracks and head out to the Outback, there’s good news with a new route for air travel in Australia. Regional Express – Rex – just launched daily non-stop service in northern Queensland between Townsville and Mount Isa.
After arriving in Brisbane on your international flight from the US, you can be relaxing on the beach in Townsville in just a few hours. Take time to explore the Great Barrier Reef on a day tour – then head out to the Outback for some real genuine Aussie hospitality (and a chance meeting with a few quirky characters).
Rex also will be offering twice weekly (on Tuesdays and Thursdays) service between Townsville and Longreach by way of Winton. Visit the Stockman’s Hall of Fame, the Waltzing Matilda Centre and the Qantas Founder’s Outback Museum; chat with the locals in an Outback pub or sit around a campfire in the evening.
Flights from the Outback will arrive in Townsville in the morning; return flights depart Townsville in the late afternoon / early evening.
