The summer is well and truly here and with that comes the old question - What activities can we do with the kids?
“Here at the Mary Valley Rattler, we love kids and kids love trains!”
General Manager Mike Green said. “Our holiday periods are an exciting time for our team as we welcome families from all over Australia and overseas to get on board our trains. Our volunteers love the special event trains where we get dressed up and theme our trains.”
The January holidays are a great time to reconnect with family and explore the beautiful Gympie region. In addition to the regular service schedule which sees trains depart the historic Gympie Station six days a week, there are special holiday trains scheduled as well. New Years Day kicks off 2020 with a holiday express train departing at 10am.
Later in the month, the popular Aussie Express Train rolls out of Gympie on Monday 27th January with a BBQ at Amamoor, family games and a best dressed competition. With adults travelling at kids’ prices this is an Australia Day event not to be missed!
“We find that extended families are all enjoying their day out on the Rattler. It’s a great nostalgic experience that the grandparents can share with their grandchildren who love the toot and whistle of the half day train trip through the picturesque Mary Valley.” Mike said.
