"The Valley Rattler" Steam Train Tour - Gympie
Join us for a lovely Half day tour exploring the beautiful Mary River valley in the Sunshine Coast Hinterland.
We drive West to the quaint country town of Imbil, when we hear the whistle blow, it's “All Aboard” the “Valley Rattler” steam train. The track winds though crops, pastures and forests to Dagun Station where we stop for wine and cheese tasting, then re-board “the Rattler” for the run into magnificent Old Gympie Station. (Note: Saturday Rattler runs between Gympie and Dagun via Amamoor)
They call Gympie ”The City that saved Queensland”; Gold was discovered here in 1867, the gold rush lasted over 50 years with over 4 Million Ounces of Gold recovered. On our way home we take a drive tour of some the grand stone and timber buildings in Gympie's city centre before returning to the Sunshine Coast.
