MORE than 150 people boarded the Mary Valley Rattler today for a three-hour return journey to Amamoor, marking its first Holiday Express service.

Families from as far as Brisbane and the Sunshine Coast joined in on the festivities with face-painting a popular activity for the children.

It was a chance for the community to Meet the Fleet and a chance to see the crew from Wildlife HQ who delighted crowds with their mates.

The Holiday Express departs the historic Gympie station at 10am on July 12, 19 and 26.
