Yep. here's another one. Classic Aussie beach that is. This shot is taken from Point Perry looking north to Noosa. Just past the rocks is the patrolled section of the beach and this is one where you don't have to worry about fashion too much. It's probably the most laid back beach on the Sunshine Coast.
MARY VALLEY RATTLER - GYMPIE
This is the name of the STEAM TRAIN, that runs on heritage tours every Wednesday, Saturday and Sunday.
Tours depart from the Gympie Railway Station.
Starting from Gympie, you pass through the town, to Monkland, across the Mary river into the scenic Mary river valley.
Pineapples, Macadamia plantations, Dairy farms, cattle are along the way.
The Train stops at Stations of little towns along the way, Dagan, (on the way back for wine & cheese tasting ) Amamoor, Kandanga (markets and stalls on Sundays) and finally Imbil, the turn around point.
There was a market here, and we had time to enjoy lunch and wander around the town before heading back to Gympie.
The trip length is 80ks. You may see Kangaroos, we did.
On every 3rd Sunday of the month, BUSHRANGERS HOLD UP THE TRAIN!.
