JOIN US ON AUSTRALIA’S FIRST LGBTI TRAIN

“Be part of History on board Australia’s first ever LGBTI Train departing Melbourne on the morning of Saturday 15th November.

“Our private Heritage Train will hit the tracks powering towards the Goulburn Valley festival, OUTintheOPEN.

“Leaving Southern Cross Station at 7.30am (we know its early) we celebrate our achievement of being Australia’s First Exclusive LGBTI Train with a Champagne breakfast as the suburbs of Melbourne flash by. Enjoy the DJ in the Dance club or a quiet chat in Club Lounge 708.
The food will flow and a party atmosphere will fill the carriages. As the Rainbow Flags flutter on the Locomotives and carriages, listen out for the whistle as the drivers announce our arrival in each town as we slow down to make our presence known.
Grab a seat by a window and wave to our LGBTI Country Family as they come out to support our journey.”
