Bundaberg Steam Train Rides @ Botanic Gardens
Bundaberg Steam Train Rides at the Botanic Gardens
The Australian Sugarcane Railway conduct train rides every Sunday on their track located in the picturesque Bundaberg Botanic Gardens. The platform is located next to the Coffee Shop and Rose Garden and is easily accessible from the Mt Perry Road entrance to the gardens.
The ride takes about 10 minutes so there is never too long to wait for the next train to come. The train travels adjacent to the wetland area through bush, parkland and even the railway workshop.
This service is disability friendly and wheelchair accessible. There are 5 carriages that fit 6 adults comfortably in each.
The conductor uses a ticket puncher to record your entry, which the kids just love. All passengers are given an information sheet on the train which includes a colouring in section. There are currently 3 trains used for rides which are rotated. This means each time you go you most likely will not ride the same train you rode last time.
Ticket prices are $4 for adults and $1 for school aged children. The train runs every Sunday from 10am to 3.30pm (last train) and operates more frequently during the School Holidays. Check our events calendar for additional school holiday rides days.
