Steam Train Experiences

Steam Train Experiences are a great way for people to experience train travel the way it was over 50 years ago. Steam train travel was far different than it is on today's high-speed, air-conditioned trains. Leather seats, wooden carriages, open windows and the smell of steam made travelling an exciting and romantic occassion, and one we hope to share with passengers today.



First Sunday and selected Saturdays of each month

Make it a day out - ride on our vintage train in one of our heritage coaches between Swanbank Station and Bundamba Racecourse. Have a picnic lunch or a BBQ in the park just a short walk from the Swanbank Station. Toilets and BBQ facilities available. Wheelchair access available.

Did you know… You can get a true taste of a working cattle station at Spicers Hidden Vale, riding out with a musterer to round up the cattle before enjoying a hard earned camp oven lunch.
