Melsa Train Park | Bribie Island

Anyone (big or little) who has a fascination with trains will love the Melsa Train Park on Bribie Island. The Melsa tradition was started 30 years ago by the Model Engineers and Live Steamers Association and is as popular as ever. Ride on miniature steam trains running on 500 metres of 5″ to 7¼” gauge.

This miniature steam train takes passengers on a delightful 500 metre journey around the Melsa Park track on the third Sunday of every month between 10:00am and 2:30pm. The train ride takes you through the picturesque bush surrounds of Melsa Park and it’s sure to delight the senses of train enthusiasts young and old. The Melsa Train Park is a great, inexpensive day out for the whole family. Train rides cost just $2 and the smell of the Lion’s Club sausage sizzle is hard to resist.

Make the Melsa Train Park just one part of an historical day trip to Bribie Island

If there’s someone in your family with a passion for miniature trains and other relics from yesteryear, there’s every chance they’ll be fascinated by the

real tank and artillery just down the road from the Melsa Train Park. The decommissioned Leopard AS1 Tank is located next to the Bribie Island RSL. Back

in 2010, the Federal Government offered 30 of these tanks to RSLs around the country and the Bribie Island Branch was one of the lucky recipients. The

Australian Defence Force began using the Leopard Tanks in 1977 and they played a major role within the force. The tank is quite a sight at 7 metres long

and weighing 42 tonnes. Military history buffs and anyone with an interest in wars (read: little boys!) are sure to be impressed by its scale.

Feed those hungry appetites at the Bribie Island and District Community Markets

After a morning of trains and tanks, take the tribe to the Bribie Island and District Community Markets. These markets are also held on the third Sunday

of each month, making it the perfect place to round out your day following a trip to the Melsa Train Park. There’s a jumping castle for the kids, shopping

for the whole family and a great place for a feed after your busy morning. And all right on the beautiful Pumicestone Passage. Perfect!

Bribie Island’s Melsa Train Park, RSL and Markets make for a great (3rd) Sunday!Share your adventure #visitmoretonbayregion
