A warm welcome at the station.


Hop onto the restored C17 steam train in Gympie and let the excitement begin as you rattle along the tracks, winding your way through the scenic Mary Valley to the charming town of Amamoor. Keep your eyes peeled for wildlife and enjoy the rhythmic chug-chug of the train, a delight for train enthusiasts of all ages!

Once you arrive in Amamoor, watch in awe as the train prepares for its return journey via the turntable. Take a moment to stretch your legs and explore this quaint town before hopping back on board for the ride back to Gympie Station. Throughout the journey, volunteer guides will captivate your imagination with fascinating historical tales about the trains and the region, making learning fun for everyone!
