There are so many ways to get to Richmond - regardless of whether you want to take the wheel, or sit back and enjoy the ride.
While some may think the Outback is strictly four wheel drive material - it's not. Major highways such as the Matilda Highway and Overlander's Way are fully sealed and the accommodation is as varied as it is comfortable. If you're on the caravan journey of a lifetime, you will be pleased to know nearly all towns have caravan parks.
One way to start a perfect Outback adventure is aboard one of Queensland Rail's Inlander trains. The 10 hour trip will have you passing through all the towns between Townsville and Mt Isa with Richmond being about halfway from either destination. There are two departures per week. For rail only bookings phone 132 232 or visit www.traveltrain.com.au.
