Aboard the train before 10am at Sydney Central railway station. The train will then fly through the Northern suburbs of Sydney. And if you live near Strathfield or Hornsby, the Easter Bunny Express will be making a brief stop so that you may hop on.
Upon leaving Sydney, the Easter Bunny Express swerves in and amongst the trees of the Kuring-Gai Chase National Park before it descends into the Hawkesbury River valley.
When the train arrives at Brooklyn (located on the banks of the Hawkesbury River), you will have two hours to explore the little fishing town. Eat at one of the seafood restaurants here. and when you are done, consider a walk along the Brooklyn boat harbour. You might even decide to go for a 15-20 minute trek along the Brooklyn Park Mangrove Boardwalk and have a picnic.

After you board back on the train, the Easter Bunny express takes you on a scenic tour across the Hawkesbury River and along Mullet Creek. The Easter Bunny Express travels pastthe Brisbane Water estuary before it arrives in Gosford.
While the steam locomotive uses the turntable at Gosford to turn around, you might decide to wander around the local stores.
An hour later, the train will make its afternoon run back to Sydney.
