Welcome to The Workshops Rail Museum, an impressive heritage setting with the capability to create everlasting memories for your next event or special occasion.

The Workshops were built between 1878 and the 1980s and added to the Queensland Heritage Register in 1997.  Our venues boast exceptional character and charm sitting proudly on the original site of Queensland's first ever rail workshops. 

We have created the perfect balance of retaining its heritage and unique characteristics but updated it to offer a blank canvas space so you can design your own modern wedding or event with heritage at its heart.

We have a spectacular selection of spaces available for all occasions - weddings, school formals, conferences, kids parties and memorial receptions to name a few!
