A freight train loaded with sulphuric acid reportedly derailed on Sunday near Julia Creek in Australia's outback.

Local media reported the 26-carriage train carrying about 200,000 liters as having come off the tracks and spilling small amounts of acid and some diesel fuel.

Police have set up an exclusion zone and three people sustained minor injuries, Australia media reported.
