Bracken Ridge Lions Train Day | Bracken Ridge

23 March @ 9:00 am - 1:00 pm

Trains Brisbane
The Bracken Ridge Lions are holding their monthly train day this Sunday 23rd of March 2024 from 9am – 1pm.
Everyone we talk to loves this affordable and fun family event!  Kids and their adults can ride the steam and electric miniature trains from 9am to 1pm at McPherson Park, Denham Street, Bracken Ridge for a small fee.
The track officially opened in 1996 so the Bracken Ridge Lions have certainly brought their fair share of joy to the community over the years.
The Bracken Ridge Central Steam/Electric Railway is proudly run and operated by the Bracken Ridge Central Lions Club, with all proceeds going back to the community. 
Please keep in mind this event is coordinated by volunteers who deserve to be thanked for their community contribution. We know you’ll be sure to show our collective gratitude to the Bracken Ridge Lions for this great, low-cost community activity.
