It used to be all about the flights. Now, Qantas Frequent Flyers can earn and use Qantas Points on rail travel thanks to a partnership with Journey Beyond.

Under the new partnership, members can unlock Classic Rewards when travelling on The Ghan, Indian Pacific,  the Great Southern, or The Overland. This represents the first time that members have been able to redeem Classic Rewards on the ground.

Journey Beyond

Journey Beyond offers extended overnight rail holidays that traverse some of Australia’s most picturesque and iconic landscapes. This includes the Red Centre, Blue Mountains, and east coast.

The all-inclusive high-end expeditions include bespoke menus inspired by the places the trains travel through. The journeys also allow guests to explore beyond the tracks with immersive Off Train Excursions.

Qantas Classic Rail Reward

One of the interesting features of the new partnership is the ability to redeem points for Classic Rewards. Having looked at some of these trips in the past, they can be quite expensive. However, as Classic Rewards, they could bring the chance of taking one of these journeys within reach.

The current Classic Reward table is as follows
