The Sunshine Coast Railway Modellers Society is a unique attraction for young people interested in learning more about miniature locomotives and railways.
The park home to the tracks opened its doors to the public in November 1980, while the Roy Stephens Loop was added in September 1999.

The members are made up of passionate individuals about the subject, and new members are welcome. You don’t need to own a locomotive to be a member since they already provide training, and members will be allowed to use the locomotive belonging to the club. Members and volunteers are welcome to bring miniature locomotives to the club track so that the public can take a ride on them.
The Sunshine Coast Railway Modellers Society track features a 5” and 7 1/4” dual gauge design. It also now occupies two levels, though the higher area is located in the top half while the lower area is represented as beneath the Namba Creek Bridge. Several majestic trees have been visually designed to separate the levels, giving visitors an authentic feel of a real train journey.
It also includes a pedestrian bridge that leads to the toilet block, allowing patrons to wave to passengers and enjoy the thrill of seeing the steam from the locomotives.
The Sunshine Coast Railway Modellers Society is a must-visit for locomotive enthusiasts and children alike.
