The quintessential Queensland holiday which has been hatched by nature

The quintessential Queensland holiday which has been hatched by nature

Starts At 60 - News

It’s a balmy beachy evening, the kind that reminds you of those old-fashioned holidays when you were young. You remember the type. When mum miraculously tossed out the rule book about being home by the time the sun conceded to another sultry summer day. Instead, she allowed you to frolic by the ocean with your mates. Mind you, not too late, just enough time to allow you to squeeze that last bit of oozy goodness out of your day, before crawling into your summer sheets, sandy feet and all. Reading under the covers by torchlight way beyond bedtime? You had that sorted too.

Late November/early December in Bundaberg and it’s that same scent of nostalgia. These are languid lollypop days in Queensland’s coastal city most renowned for its rum. The Tilt Train & Turtles Getaway begins aboard Queensland Rail’s Tilt Train. Crawl into your comfortable seat and let the world wash over you on this 351km journey which takes just 4.5 hours.

World's funniest wildlife photo 2020: Photographer Mark Fitzpatrick on capturing great shots
It was an image so hilarious yet so apt that it resonated around a pandemic-scarred world. A turtle is pictured off Queensland doing just what everyone felt like doing to 2020 - flipping it the bird with a perfectly positioned flipper.
