Rattler Tasting Train

Community Event

12 Nov 2019 to 24 Nov 2020

The historic Gympie Station on Tozer St, has been restored to its former glory. 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.

This region boasts great produce and producers. 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. Here you can watch the fascinating process of the turning of the engine on the turntable.
