A fantastic interactive authentic heritage and cultural experience located at Australia’s oldest railway workshops, that has some great accessible and sensory features.
The hands-on exhibits, multi-media encounters and colourful stories coupled with huge steam locomotives and massive industrial machinery, you don’t need to be a train enthusiast to enjoy this attraction.
You can explore over 15 larger-than-life exhibits to discover the enormous impact rail has had on our lives, beautifully restored carriages, the largest model railway of beautiful Queensland, the future of rail and treasured icons including the Vice-Regal carriage and Australia’s oldest working steam locomotive.
The children’s interactive area, Nipper Play and Learn doesn’t disappoint either. Running between signal towers, train stations and delivering parcels for deliveries, we had to drag our little traveller away to look at the rest of the fantastic exhibits.
The Workshops Rail Museum, part of the Queensland Museum, is winner of Australian and Queensland Tourism Awards for Heritage & Cultural Tourism. And it is easy to see why.
Great information on the website for all travellers whether you have access needs, visiting with children or a as a group, there is a comprehensive guide to ensure you will enjoy your visit, and great access features and signage to see you around the enormous attraction.
