    Classic Rattler Run – Departs Wednesday, Saturday & Sunday Gympie to Amamoor (Return) 

    The Mary Valley Rattler is one of Queensland’s most iconic heritage steam train experiences, capturing the Gympie region’s rich history while offering visitors a contemporary tourism attraction and the beauty of the spectacular Mary Valley landscape.

    This 3 hour, 40km journey, in a beautifully restored C17 steam train, is an iconic experience like no other. Departing from the Historic Gympie Station,  you travel through rich agricultural farmland right into the heart of the picturesque Mary Valley.

    On arrival in the quaint town of Amamoor, here you can disembark your carriage and make your way to a viewing area to watch the train engine as it turns on the turntable.  Enjoy a short stay to explore the Amamoor Village Green before reboarding your assigned carriage for your return journey to the Gympie Station.

    On board, volunteer guides provide a wealth of historical detail about the trains and the region as you enjoy the views and the nostalgia of travel from times past.

    Please note this service offers bench seating only.

    For no availability dates please check our “Events Tab” for your chosen date options as scheduled services do not run on Event dates.

    Please note- A $10.00 donation option is available, this donation supports the restoration of our many carriages. We appreciate your generosity in donating to the sustainability of The Mary Valley Rattlers Heritage Fleet.

    PLEASE NOTE: Sunday Service returns to the Gympie Station at 1.30pm (30 minutes later than Wednesday and Saturday service). This includes an additional station stop at Dagun where you can enjoy outdoor games and wine and cheese tasting (that can be purchased on the day at an additional cost).
