There is a train station located in the nearby town of Wauchope with daily services to and from Sydney. A note to international visitors, in Australia, for one reason or another, the train tracks in NSW are a different size to those in Queensland, as such there is no train service from Queensland (without changing to a bus as you approach the border).
