Steam Train Ride | Ipswich | 8 November, 2020

8 November, 2020

All Aboard! Grab the kids for a step back in time on a historical Ipswich steam train hosted by The Workshops Railway Museum! Enjoy the interactive exhibitions at the Museum before traveling by heritage bus to the Queensland Pioneer Steam Railway at Swanbank for a short steam train ride.

You will then return to the Museum to continue exploring for as long as you like. Make a day of it, bring along a picnic to enjoy on the grounds, or grab a bite at the Trackside Cafe. Your ticket includes entry into The Workshops Railway Museum from 9:30am to 4pm with your choice of two departure times available to book:

  • Morning departure – 10:45am
  • Afternoon departure – 12:45pm

Parking: There is plenty of onsite and street parking available. It is quite the distance from the carpark to the Museum entrance so you may need help carrying things or we recommend bringing a pram or similar.

Public transport: Plenty of options. See the Museum website for more details.

Accessibility: The venue is predominately flat and has ramps so accessible for all.

Shade: There are great spots to picnic outside but bring hats and sunscreen because on a busy day a shaded spot can be hard to find.

Wet weather: Most of the Museum is indoors with plenty of cover available.
