The Journey

The Historic Gympie Station, Tozer Street is a traditional Queensland building which has been fully restored to its former glory. Make sure you leave plenty of time to explore The Station which houses a historical display sharing stories of the Mary Valley Railway line and its people.

The Platform No. 1 Café caters for all tastes and the gift shop stocks a variety of train-themed treasures and local specialty products.

Step aboard one of our meticulously restored trains and travel along the tracks that have been brought back to life. Sit back, relax and enjoy the breathtaking scenery of the Mary Valley.

The journey through the Mary Valley passes through the picturesque small town of Dagun.

Nestled in the centre of the Mary Valley, Amamoor is an historic town bordered by Amamoor State Forest which is home to more than 120 species of birds. Here the train will turn around on the restored turntable. You can watch this fascinating process or explore the quaint community of Amamoor.
