All aboard the heritage Mary Valley Rattler train for a scenic railway journey through the picturesque Mary Valley from Gympie – around a 45 minutes drive north on the M1 from Eumarella Shores.
This railway journey is a must for those who love train travel. Enjoy the scenic views as you ride through the townships of the Mary Valley. These trains are lovingly restored and this is a great family activity for young and old. Make sure that you leave time to wander through the station museum, gift shop and cafe.
Duration: 3 Hours (approx.)
Enjoy a tasting plate on board featuring local fare and learn about the food bowl that is the Mary Valley on board as you cross the Mary River as you travel around an abundance of curves, over bridges and numerous gentle hills.
The line wanders away from the river and into the valleys of some of its main tributaries including the Yabba, Kandanga and Amamoor Creeks and passes through the small township of Dagun.
The quaint community of Amamoor is a delightful historic town bordered by a verdant forest reserve, home to more than 120 species of birds. Here you can watch the fascinating process of the turning of the engine on the turntable.
Lunch is available at the heritage Amamoor Station, grazing table style at additional $20 per person.
Beverages available at Gympie and Amamoor Stations.
Departs: Tuesdays 11am from the Historic Gympie Station, Tozer Street, Gympie.
