All aboard the Spring Bluff Shuttle!

Locals love it, and visitors travel from all over the country to be part of the Toowoomba Carnival of Flowers festivities in spring every year.

17 - 23 September 2017

Travel by diesel hauled train from Toowoomba's Railway Station to the prizewinning Carnival gardens and surrounds of Spring Bluff Railway Station.

Trains leave Toowoomba twice daily on a beautifully scenic journey down to Spring Bluff where you're welcomed by the 'acting' station master and greeted with song and dance.

Pack a picnic, grab a coffee and enjoy a great rail day out.
