Lost property


Update in response to COVID-19:

For the safety of our employees and customers, the Queensland Rail Lost Property Office - located at Central station - will be operating at reduced hours until further notice.   

If you have misplaced an item across this network, you can visit the Collection Office between 9am-3pm on weekdays, or alternatively contact the Lost Property team by calling 13 16 17 between 9am-4.30pm. Please note, only one customer will be allowed into the lost property office at a time.  

To limit the handling of items, we ask customers to please be mindful of your belongings while travelling with us at this time and take all of your possessions with you before you disembark your service. 

We appreciate your understanding as we continue to support the containment of COVID-19 for your safety.
