About

Departing from Roma Street our train will stop to pick up passengers at Northgate, Lawnton and Caboolture. The scenery on the North Coast Line is stunning. Once suburbia is left behind the route is through pineapple and citrus plantations and passes the spectacular Glass House Mountains. Areas of virgin scrub and rain forest are also encountered en route to the Sunshine Coast Hinterland.

The steam train will take us as far as the thriving Hinterland townof Palmwoods.

Our travellers will then have 4 choices:-

A. Join a coach which will take you to Wildlife HQ Woombye take in what this wildlife park has to offer, see many different animals, and grab a bite to eat.

B. Join a coach to travel to Mapleton Falls, then to Mapleton where you can purchase a bite to eat, or a nice cool drink.

C. Stay in Palmwoods, have lunch at one of the several eateries or hotel and have a look around the town.

D. The train will be doing a short trip for local people to Yandina and return. You may purchase an additional ticket to travel on this shuttle.

THE TRAIN: One of Queensland Rail’s preserved main line steam engines and wooden carriages from Queensland Rail’s heritage fleet will be used.
