Campers in for a treat

IN celebration of all that is good about our region, the Mary Valley Heritage Railway and Polleys Coaches have combined their services to give Muster campers a unique opportunity this Saturday.

For the first time, Muster campers can board the historic steam train at Amamoor Station and head into Gympie for the free Pre-Muster Day festivities.

Then there is the option to board a Polleys bus bound for the Muster Cup and back by bus to the railway station in time to catch the historic Red Rocket back to Amamoor.

Take a self-guided tour of the historic buildings and enjoy a lunch at one of the historic pubs before the Valley Rattler returns to Amamoor. Or choose your own adventure from the tour options available below and book your seats on 1800 444 222:
