Sunshine Coast: Mary Valley Rattler Ticket from Gympie

1. Sunshine Coast: Mary Valley Rattler Ticket from Gympie

Rediscover the magic of a bygone era aboard the historic Mary Valley Rattler. The Mary Valley Rattler fleet is made up of heritage steam locomotives and carriages, each with their own unique story. The fleet also boasts vintage railmotors and diesel locomotives. The historic Gympie Station on Tozer St, 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. The popular Platform No.1 Cafe offers a dine in experience before or after your rail journey, or you can buy take away treats to enjoy on board. The gift shop offers a selection of local goodies as well as speciality giftware and souvenirs. Have a chat with the train drivers and the tour guides before you board the train. Then 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 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.

Well organised, volunteers wonderful, being on steam a great joy. Access suitable for disabled.seating varies between carriages reflecting different classes. All staff approachable. Engine driver very accommodating. Folk at Amamoor put themselves out. Only negative is Cafe inability to cope with volume.took ages for lunch and coffee to arrive (in excess of an hour)

This was an amazing experience from start to finish. Highly recommended.
