Travelling from Brisbane?

If you’re travelling from Brisbane why not catch the train and transfer to the tram at Helensvale. Or if you prefer to drive why not park the car at the Parkwood Park ‘n’ Ride and catch the tram from Parkwood station, which is only a short walk across the pedestrian bridge.

Travel safe and stay hydrated in the Queensland sun. Water fountains are available on every station.
