Give the Driver a Rest
Are you sick of driving everywhere? Take a train from Roma Street and explore our country towns.

On the Sunshine Coast hinterland you might like to stop at Palmwoods, Glasshouse Mountains or Woombye. Each has things to recommend it.

I chose Woombye. It's small quaint little country town and doesn't involve too much walking. After leaving the train, wander past the memorial park up a slight hill to the town.

The Woombye Hotel


Several cafes and a hotel are open for meals.

One of the cafes.


The Op Shop is quite small but packed with well priced goods. I found a shirt for $2.



Make sure to see the huge murals on the side of the old style butcher shop and the bakery opposite.

You know you're in the country...


There is a very pretty park with a small playground near the station which also has toilets.

A park if you need a rest or a play while you wait for the train.


It's lovely place to practice your photography skills.

If you like old buildings or enjoy a bit of nostalgia you'll appreciate the old style buildings and shops.

Not just hardware.


Of course you can drive and see several places in one day but do you really want to rush?
