History of the Durundur Train Line, Woodford

The North Coast Line opened between Nundah and Landsborough in 1888-1890, with the Caboolture Station opening 1889. Whilst a branch line opened to Woodford in 1909 and to Kilcoy in 1913. The Kilcoy branch was closed west of Wamuran in 1964 and track and buildings were removed at that time.

By 1980 a group of rail enthusiasts had taken over some land on the outskirts of Woodford and had laid track so they could offer train rides to fund further growth of their railway. The trains in use came from the sugar cane industry and are of 2ft/610mm gauge.

Enjoy a relaxing picnic
