November 2006 An opening ceremony for Stage 1 took place on 4 Nov 2006, in drizzling rain in keeping with the tropical setting.
Stage 1 consisted of a line around the perimeter with 3 loops at Tabletop and 2 loops at Finch Haven. The line is raised above ground level for most of its length and surrounded by the rain forest garden. Tabletop is on a substantial 1/5th scale trestle, reminiscent of real Queensland bridges.
December 2007 Stage 2 had an opening ceremony on 8 Dec 2007, it provides a longer run, out & back, or point to point via two reversing loops.
While no track plan is ever final, the general arrangement is depicted on the Track Plan / Map page. It is constructed in a beautiful setting with lush vegetation and trains disappearing into the growth and reappearing elsewhere.
