Mudgee Wine and Heritage Escape

The first railway to travel between Sydney and Brisbane via the scenic New England route has been closed for decades. However, part of this iconic line is still maintained and occasionally a special rail tour brings it to life. This short but sweet adventure centres on an excursion along this historic railway, taking you across Southern Queensland’s Granite Belt from Brisbane to Toowoomba, before continuing to Warwick for a special steam train journey up the range to Wallangarra. The trip incorporates tours in cities and towns along the way and features award-winning museums, grand old country mansions, wineries and woolsheds and some of Australia’s most interesting railway museums.
