Inland Rail Conference

The next ALC/ARA Inland Rail Conference will be held on 5-6 May 2021 in Albury Wodonga.

The two-day conference will bring together key players involved in the Inland Rail project to discuss how this nationally significant infrastructure project is already transforming the movement of freight in Australia, what it means for the Australian freight industry and the benefits it will deliver for national freight customers as the project progresses. The conference will also look at how Inland Rail plays its part in boosting the economy and future-proofing Australia's supply chains.

The Inland Rail Conference was postponed in April 2020 due to the continued uncertainty within our industry and the evolving impacts of COVID-19. Thank you again for your understanding and continued support of the Inland Rail Conference – and for all that you are doing as industry professionals to support Australian communities at this extraordinary time.

Save the date now to ensure you don’t miss this important industry event.

2019 Inland Rail Conference in Toowoomba, Queensland

With the theme Connecting Regions, Building Australia, the Conference was attended by 460 people, and focussed on how this nationally significant infrastructure project will transform the movement of freight in Australia.

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

Participants explored multiple facets of this nationally-significant freight rail infrastructure project and set out the actions needed to ensure local communities, consumers, producers, freight operators and the Australian economy derive the full benefits of Inland Rail, both during the construction phase and once it is operational.

You can find a selection of presentations and photos from the Conference on the ALC website.
