Sunshine Express Rail Tours invite you to travel on a steam train tour to Noosa Heads or Eumundi Markets
Saturday, 17th November 2018
Departing from Roma Street our train will stop to pick up passengers at Northgate, Lawnton and Caboolture. The train journey to the North Coast is always popular. After leaving suburbia behind, the train passes the spectacular Glass House Mountains and travels through pineapple plantations, citrus orchards as well as areas of virgin scrub and rain forest in Sunshine Coast Hinterland.
The steam train will take us as far as the thriving Hinterland town of Yandina.
Our travellers will then have 4 choices:-
- A. Join a coach which will take you to the seaside resort of Noosa Heads where you can have a swim in the ocean or just have lunch and breathe in the salt sea air;
- B. Join a coach to travel to the long established renowned Eumundi Markets and stroll around the various stalls and maybe make a purchase (or two). Food and drinks are on sale.
- C. Stay in Yandina, have lunch at one of the several eateries and have a look around the town;
- D. The train will be doing a short trip for local people to Cooroy and return. You may purchase an additional ticket to travel on this shuttle.
