Rediscover the magic of a bygone era aboard the historic Mary Valley Rattler.

The Mary Valley Rattler fleet is made up of heritage diesel and steam locomotives and carriages each with their own unique story.  The fleet also boasts vintage railmotors.

The historic Gympie Station on Tozer St, has been restored to its former glory. Make sure you arrive early enough to take time to wander through the Station where you will learn the stories of the Mary Valley Rattler line, its people and its history.

The popular Platform No.1 Cafe offers a dine in experience before or after your rail journey, or you can buy take away treats to enjoy on board. You can even purchase a bottle of wine and a local cheese platter for the ride.

The gift shop offers a selection of local goodies as well as speciality giftware and souvenirs.  

Have a chat with the train drivers and the tour guides before you board the train.  Then sit back and relax as you begin your nostalgic rail journey through one of the most beautiful parts of Queensland.

Discover the romance of the railway through the scenic Mary Valley. The journey crosses the Mary River as you travel around an abundance of curves, over bridges and numerous gentle hills.

The line wanders away from the river and into the valleys of some of its main tributaries including the Yabba, Kandanga and Amamoor Creeks.

The quaint community of Amamoor is a delightful historic town bordered by a verdant forest reserve, home to more than 120 species of birds. Here you can watch the fascinating process of the turning of the engine on the turntable.

Your return journey stops at the beautiful heritage station in Dagun. Meet the locals and experience the friendly laid back atmosphere of rural living at its best before you are back on board for your return trip to Gympie.
