    Backpackers offered free ride to Queensland

    Tourism Queensland says it will extend a free travel offer until 500 backpackers sign up to come to Queensland.

    The offer includes bus travel from Sydney to the Gold Coast or Brisbane and rail passes as far north as Cairns when backpackers book five nights' accommodation in Queensland.

    They had a deadline of midnight to register.

    But Tourism Queensland's Wendy Harch says fewer than 100 people have registered for the offer.

    She says the offer will stand until the target is reached.

    Sheesh, do I really have to travel by coach or train? Isn't it cheaper to fly to Cairns and much less painful? :)

    '
    Nothing is cheaper than free :) Although there will be a bit of money required for the chiropractor and massage therapy after the trip :)
