Half price tickets for kids and Eggspectacular rides on the Mary Valley Rattler over Easter holidays
31 March 2022: The Mary Valley Rattler will be running special family-friendly services throughout the Easter School holidays, with children’s tickets reduced by 50% and EGGSPECTACULAR Easter train services on each day of the Easter long-weekend (15 – 18 April).
Prices for children will be reduced from $35 to $17.50 over the Queensland school holidays (4 – 18 April) when accompanying adult passengers.
A feature of the EGGSPECTACULAR services over the Easter long weekend will be an Easter egg hunt at Amamoor, and on the Saturday and Sunday, the Rattler’s own mascot, Steam Man, will make an appearance and host the Easter egg hunt on the Amamoor Village Green.
Children also have the opportunity to meet the driver before the train departs Gympie Station at 10am. The trains will travel to Amamoor, crossing over bridges and through the lush landscape to one of Mary Valley’s most attractive villages, Amamoor, where passengers disembark and get to see the steam engine being turned around on the historic turntable.
The train returns to Gympie by 1pm, with the station’s Rusty Rails Café offering a great end to the journey, with menus designed to please all the family.
Half-price children’s tickets for the ride are available for $17.50, and adults’ tickets are $65. To secure half-price tickets for the children, bookings must be made directly by phone on 07 5482 2750. Bookings are essential.
Families can also bring their family pet, and a special carriage is available for wheelchair-bound passengers.
Gympie is just over two hours’ drive from Brisbane and less than an hour from the Sunshine Coast.
