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.
The site is compiled by Brad Peadon with the great help of so many others.

Help Us Save The Historic Maroochy River Lift Bridge.
It takes just a few seconds, but could make all the difference.
Join In The Celebration – December 2nd 2018 at Bli Bli.
‘Maroochy Shire Tramways’ will be there, along with our sister group
‘Maroochy River Lift Bridge’. You shall also find us both at Tramfest
on December 8th. Come and say G’Day.
