Southern Downs Steam Railway is a fantastic place to visit, located two and a half hours from the Gold Coast.

The Southern Downs Steam Railway Association Inc (SDSR) is a volunteer, not-for-profit tourist heritage steam railway.

Formed in 1996, the SDSR has been operating on Queensland Rail main lines in the heart of the picturesque Southern Darling Downs and Granite Belt Regions of Southern Queensland.

The lines run on include:-

  • Southern Line – South to Stanthorpe & Wallangarra, and North to Hendon, Clifton & Toowoomba.
  • South Western Line – West to Inglewood, Goondiwindi, and Toobeah.

With a focus on people “experiencing the magic of steam on the Southern Downs”, SDSR offers train journeys to meet most tastes. From short family journeys to Hendon and Clifton, to the full day out retracing the Sydney Mail run to Wallangarra, SDSR’s journeys are all different, unique, and steeped with a touch of magic. Why don’t you join the magic today.
