Steam festival is the ultimate

PLANES, steam trains and automobiles proved an irresistible attraction for some 600 people at Gympie’s Ultimate Steam Festival on the weekend.

The event, held at three venues – the WoodWorks Forestry and Timber Museum, the Gold Mining and Historical Museum and the old Gympie Railway Station, drew visitors from all over south-east Queensland, including quite a few travellers who just dropped in off the Bruce Hwy on their way past.

The WoodWorks Museum also held its official opening on Saturday in recognition of its recent change of hands and new direction.

It is now under the management of Private Forestry Service Queensland.

PFSQ chief executive officer Sean Ryan said there had been a positive response to the weekend.

PFSQ is now based at the WoodWorks and will continue to expand, renovate and renew the attraction.
