Rusty Rails Cafe — Where History Meets Culinary Excellence

Rusty Rails Cafe at the Historic Gympie Station

The historic Gympie Station, once the backbone of connectivity in the Gympie region, was restored to its former glory in 1913, and later again in 1927. The former railway station hall is where the famous Rusty Rails Cafe now stands, just a short detour from the Bruce Highway.
