Bring the kids for a nice ride on the Mary Ann steam engine. It cost $13 for 4 adults and 2 children and takes about 15mins to do a round trip.

We enjoyed the steam train ride in Queens Park. It only cost $3 each and that included a free facial from the steam!! The engine and carriages were well preserved Well worth doing.

Arrived early on Thursday morning while the volunteers were setting up at the station. Had a good chat to them about the train. Very informative and interesting as was the short train trip through the park to West Maryborough before returning via the dicks area.

Our grandson loves trains, so we brought him to have a ride on the Mary Ann and he loved it. A nice ride and a different look at the scenery.
