A couple of years ago, two blokes who’d worked with trains for the better part of 50 years purchased several historic carriages from Queensland Rail. They sought the expertise of a hospitality pundit, and then our team was born. We’ve spent the last year or so refurbishing the old carriages, and have transformed a part of the old “Sunlander” into a new boutique rail restaurant called “The Q Train”. How’s that for recycling?!
If you live around the Bellarine area, you may have seen us working on restoring the carriages over the last 12 months.
As long term homeowners on the Bellarine Peninsula, we have dreamed of creating a Restaurant Train to showcase the beautiful Bellarine and Swan Bay scenery, whilst offering premium local food and beverages. The Q Train is the realisation of this and we are proud to share this vision with Geelong, The Bellarine and beyond!
The Q Train has been awarded an AGFG Readers Choice award for 2018 in the Modern Australian Category for the Geelong & The Bellarine Peninsula region.
