Murder Mystery Train qld pioneer steam railway

Take a retro whodunnit 'Murder on the Dance Floor' train trip through bushland at twilight when the Queensland Pioneer Steam Railway hosts its popular Murder Mystery Train event, with this one set in the 1980s.

“A hot, humid evening in November 1984 and it is the final week of ‘See the Stars Dance’, the hit TV show where celebrities compete to take the crown. Three couples remain but only one can win. With a fearsome trio of judges presiding, who will emerge victorious?.”

Audiences start the evening with appetizers and a 2-course buffet style dinner at the Ipswich Country Motel, after which a vintage bus transports everyone to Swanbank Station by the Lake.

From there the drama unfolds on a 60 minute twilight journey through the bushland surrounds of the former West Moreton Coal Mines in historic 1900s train carriages. Audiences watch the murder mystery in action and get stuck in as the plot thickens before playing detective to solve the murder.

Need to know – Patrons are encouraged to dress up in 1980s style character if they wish. Tickets $95pp includes appetizers, 2-course dinner, bus and train ride. The venue is fully licensed and drinks (not included) must be purchased separately. Bookings close on March 22nd.
