Warwick to Toowoomba and return (SPECIAL)

Our destination Toowoomba is a beautiful place to visit and well worth a day out with the family. Why not link your trip with a visit to the Toowoomba Carnival of Flowers, or maybe a spot of shopping at one of the nearby shopping centres.
Prices are for the train trip only.
See you on the train!
Depart Warwick Station at 07:45am for a leisurely day on the steam train to Toowoomba, arriving at 10:45am. We will initially pass the Stations of Toolburra and Hendon. At Hendon, we are only a 5km branch line away from the township of Allora.
After our initial dash across the downs, our first stop will be at Clifton at 9:00am, where the crews will take more water for the trip, and a short 15 minute stop to pick up any passengers.
We continue from here at 9:15am into the Darling Downs passing though the townships of Nobby, Greenmount, Cambooya, and Wyreema. At Wyreema, a branch line goes west to the Pittsworth and Millmerran townships. From here we climb into the outskirts of Toowoomba, first passing Drayton, and Harriston, before the long descent into Toowoomba Station arriving at 10:45am
Our train will stop here for 3 3/4 hours, before leaving for the journey home at 2:30pm. We will arrive back in Clifton 4:20pm, before finishing the day in Warwick at 5:3pm
