Queensland Pioneer Steam Railway
There’s no stopping or hopping off on the journey, so we think the half an hour is a good length for little kids. The train leaves every hour.
While the ride on the old carriages was fun and well worth taking, for us we probably enjoyed being on the platform more! Seeing the old steam train up close while it’s operating is truly impressive, and it’s something that is a little hard to appreciate when you are sitting on the train. The volunteers are also really friendly and passionate about the train, and more than happy to have a chat and provide some more information about the train.
Be sure to check out their market day train which coincides with the Handmade Expo Markets. The products on offer are simply gorgeous, you can grab a bite to eat, there’s plenty to keep the kids entertained and of course you can check out the trains across the road every hour!
The Rosewood Railway
You can wander around and check it all out at your own pace. There are some limited refreshments available as well as a few souvenirs, and there’s some nice and shady lawn to set up a picnic on!
