Lifestyle & Work Benefits

Discounted Train Travel

Employees can travel to and from work for free, as well as access other free and/or discounted rail travel for off-duty travel on the City and long-distance travel networks.


Queensland Rail employees will receive an employer contribution of 12.75%*, calculated on ordinary time earnings. Employees may wish to also make voluntary contributions which can be made as a regular payroll deduction, or as a one-off contribution directly to the Government Superannuation Office.

Contributions can be made to a compliant superannuation fund, otherwise contributions will be made into a stapled fund as determined by the Australian Taxation Office. If no compliant fund is nominated and no stapled fund exists, then contributions will be made to QSuper.

*Employees on a Total Fixed Remuneration arrangement can opt to lower their employer contribution to the Super Guarantee requirements as a minimum.

Novated Leasing & Salary Packaging

Salary packaging is a means of providing employees with the ability to change the structure of their remuneration package and receive part of their salary in the form of non-cash benefits. One of the most popular options is Novated Motor Vehicle leasing, where benefits can include income tax savings, GST savings and access to fleet discounts.

Employees of Queensland Rail are entitled to membership with the MOVE - People Driven Banking, which can bring exclusive financial benefits. For more information, visit the MOVE website.
