Warwick and Stanthorpe Weekend

This is an opportunity for club members to experience both the wonders of steam train travel and the viticulture industry of Queensland – all in one weekend.

The steam train: 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 since 2009.The lines run on include:-Southern Line - South to Stanthorpe & Wallangarra, and North to Hendon, Clifton & Toowoomba and 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.

Stanthorpe: 1000 metres elevation, the air seems fresher, the sky more blue. Discover a landscape of dramatic beauty and diversity with four distinct seasons. The Granite Belt is crossed by the New England Highway that runs for more than 62 kms past apple orchards, vineyards and vast fields of strawberries, from Dalveen to the north of the bustling town of Stanthorpe, to Ballandean and beyond in the south.
