Inland Rail Conference


ALC / ARA Inland Rail Conference

Connecting Regions, Building Australia

21-22 August 2019, Toowoomba, Queensland - Registrations now open

The Australian Logistics Council (ALC) and Australasian Railway Association (ARA) invite you to register now for the 2019 Inland Rail Conference, to be held in Toowoomba, Queensland on 21 and 22 August 2019.

With the theme Connecting Regions, Building Australia, the Conference will focus on how this nationally significant infrastructure project will transform the movement of freight in Australia.

To be held in Toowoomba’s iconic Empire Theatre, the ALC / ARA Inland Rail Conference will feature presentations from a range of key operators, contractors, customers, suppliers and senior government stakeholders.

We will examine the opportunities and challenges associated with the Queensland section of the project, including the 126km section from Toowoomba to Kagaru in Queensland which will be delivered through a Public Private Partnership and will involve large-scale tunnelling.

The Conference will also explore the critical issues of skills, connectivity, supporting regional growth opportunities and community consultation processes.  And, we will discuss how the Inland Rail Project will underpin the National Freight and Supply Chain Strategy, due to be released later this year.

A welcome reception will be held on the evening of 20 August 2019 and we encourage you to book your accommodation and travel arrangements early to avoid disappointment.

There are sponsorship and trade exhibition opportunities available, please contact for information.

We look forward to seeing you in Toowoomba in August!
