    Dietary Information

    We take pride in showcasing the delicious local produce and Queensland made beverages to our visitors. The servery area onboard our heritage carriages, some are nearing 100 years old, has limited space so we have a regular menu with a Gluten/Vegetarian option. Unfortunately we are unable to provide any modifications to the menu for our customers. If you have any dietary concerns, please view our Gold Class dietary advice.  Find out more.
