Rattler Picnic Train

Community Event

20 Jun 2019 to 18 Jun 2020

The historic Gympie Station on Tozer Street, has been restored to its former glory. Make sure you arrive early enough to take time to wander through the Station where you will learn the stories of the Mary Valley Rattler line, its people and its history.

You then hop on board the vintage railmotor RM76 which traditionally ran the Brooloo line to Gympie providing a daily link to the town for shopping, the transportation of goods and a means for children to get to school.

Sit back and relax as you begin your nostalgic rail journey through one of the most beautiful parts of Queensland.

Discover the romance of the railway through the scenic Mary Valley. The journey crosses the Mary River as you travel around an abundance of curves, over bridges and numerous gentle hills.

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.

Pack your own picnic or enjoy a picnic pack specially prepared by their Platform No. 1 Cafe Chef before you head back to Gympie.
