The aim of this website is to share information on the tramways, east of the Queensland Railways mainline, in the Maroochy Shire region of Queensland.
It is ‘not’ aimed to be a complete history or a professional undertaking.
For tramways west of the QR mainline, I refer you to John Henley’s excellent website based on the Mapleton Tramway.
This site is compiled by Brad Peadon with the great help of so many others.
