We took the Rattler from Amamoor to Gympie return. A beautiful sunny winter's day. The set up at Amamoor is very good with cafe and restrooms in a pretty area next to the track. The train ride is good (and slow). For me it got more interesting as it approached Gympie. The setup at Gympie station is even more polished with a restaurant and well presented facilities. The staff and volunteers were a stand out, helpful, professional, knowledgable, friendly and keen to make the whole experience fun.

I arrived at Gympie station where the train was going to depart
Vic Anderson 1 year ago

I arrived at Gympie station where the train was going to depart. I entered the station to get my ticket and was greeted by a friendly team member who issued my ticket. When I was issued my ticket, I was also issued with some information on the journey train. Inside the station, had photos of the history of the train. While waiting to board the train, I had a cup of coffee and was serviced by a friendly team member. They also have a menu where you can get food and drink at reasonable prices. I went on the station and talked to talk to the train driver, who had been driving the train for over 20 years. He was friendly, told me the history of the train, which I found interesting. I boarded the train and was greeted by a friendly team. We departed from the station and while the journey was on, information was broadcast about the history of the train. We went through scenic countryside which was beautiful. I found that the team members who really enjoyed their job and had a passion for it. Arrived back to Gympie station to be greeted again and thanked for travelling. I would recommend this experience. You won't be disappointed.

What a wonderful day out for all ages
Alana Sapwell 2 years ago

What a wonderful day out for all ages. The volunteers are so dedicated and friendly. We couldn’t ask for better service. We commenced our trip at Amamoor to Gympie and back. Loved the cheese tasting as Dagun. And the lunch at Gympie railway was excellent. I recommend this trip to everybody.

The Mary Valley Rattler is an NPO, making sure the public has access to a historic rail experience. The Mary Valley Rattler's operation is supported by a large group of volunteers. Your ticket purchases will contribute to the ongoing preservation and restoration of this historic experience!
