The Queensland Rail (QR) network is the backbone of our state having played a major role in shaping Queensland’s history for over 150 years.
As of October 2016, a new milestone in QR’s history was reached with Moreton Bay Region’s newest railway line, the Redcliffe Peninsula Line, opening for service on 4th October, joining the existing QR rail network.
The new line, formerly referred to as the Moreton Bay Rail Link, connects Kippa-Ring and the Redcliffe peninsula to Petrie, providing 650 new weekly train services over 6 new stations, with a train operating every 6 to 12 minutes during peak times.
The rail network upgrade is part of a $1.2 billion program of public transport improvements for the Moreton Bay Region, delivered by the Department of Transport and Main Roads and funded by the Australian Government, Queensland Government and Moreton Bay Regional Council.
The upgrade includes the new Redcliffe Peninsula Train Line, Petrie to Lawnton track duplication and the Rothwell intersection upgrade.
The local bus network has also been improved with more services added, running more often and servicing new areas, including 17 bus routes servicing 5 of the new train stations.
Petrie Station provides connections to the Caboolture and Sunshine Coast line, as well as the Ipswich and Rosewood line and Springfield line via Roma Street Station.
All Brisbane train line connections are accessible from Roma Street Station.

The 6 new Redcliffe peninsula Line train stations are located at:

You’ll find a couple of Moreton Bay Region parks, shopping hubs, museums, art galleries, and other local attractions dotted around Strathpine, Petrie, North Lakes, and Redcliffe, easily accessible from the Peninsula Line stations and rail corridor bikeway:
From Kippa-Ring station you can keep pedal powering through Redcliffe to the beach front. The peninsula waterfront is perfect for a scenic bike ride, stroll, or well-deserved lunch.
