Entertain and educate your children during extended Queensland school holidays with special Kids Ride FREE offer on the Mary Valley Rattler

January 25, 2022 Attraction No Comments

With the school holidays in Queensland extended an extra two weeks, the Mary Valley Rattler is coming to the rescue of parents the Gympie, Noosa and Sunshine Coast areas with a special Kids Ride FREE offer until schools return.

Beginning today and extending over the next two weeks to 6 February 2022, one child under-12 can ride free on the heritage railway with every full-paying adult. That is a saving of $35 per child.

A range of services are available across the week, and the Rattler’s very own mascot, Steam Man, will be at Gympie Station and aboard the trains to make it even more entertaining.

While the emphasis will be on fun, the story of the Mary Valley Rattler offers so many lessons in history, geography and community for children, with the landscape of the Mary Valley and the historic locomotives providing a truly inspiring story.

   Children also have the opportunity to meet the driver before the train departs Gympie Station at 10am. The trains will travel to Amamoor, crossing over bridges and through the lush landscape to one of Mary Valley’s most attractive villages, Amamoor, where passengers disembark and get to see the steam engine being turned around on the historic turntable.

The train returns to Gympie by 1pm. Breakfast, lunch and snacks are available at the station’s Rusty Rails Café, with a menu designed to please all the family. As a special bonus, all kids’ meals come with a FREE ice-cream. 

Families can also bring their family pet, and a special carriage is available for wheelchair-bound passengers.

General Manager of the Mary Valley Rattler, Micheal Green, said that the trains were perfect for providing both an entertaining and educational day out for all the family.

“The great thing about the Rattler trains is that they resonate so strongly with all ages,” said Mr Green.

“We will have plenty of interactive activities for children, including our very own Steam Man, and activities to keep them involved throughout the journey.”

Adult prices are from $65. To access the special Kids Ride FREE offer, the Promotional Code STEAMMAN should be used for the booking.
