The Workshops Rail Museum


‘The Workshops’ as it is affectionately known is a site steeped in history.

Whether you’re a rail fan or not, child or adult, this fabulous state of the art museum set in the historical railway workshops is well worth a visit.

The very first train to run in Queensland steamed from here to Grandchester, over 140 years ago.

For decades the site was the centre of rail construction, maintenance and technology for Queensland’s burgeoning rail industry.

The rebirth of the site in 2002 as a world class rail museum, coupled with the oldest continually operating railway workshops in Australia, makes for a visitor experience second to none.

Well-preserved engines and carriages capture the romance of the vintage era of rail travel and the interactive displays, films, simulated train driving and themed children’s playground are but some of the attractions so set aside at least a couple of hours to really appreciate your visit.
