Bluff’s location between some of Queensland’s largest coal mines and the port of Gladstone has led to it becoming a major interchange station for large coal trains, some up to two kilometres long. Visiting the town of Bluff is like being immersed in a full-scale model railway, and should be on the ‘must see’ list for all train buffs.
Where you find railway stations, you often find beautifully manicured gardens and Bluff is no exception. The town’s people take great pride in the results of their green thumbs and hard work. The local school has overcome the hot, dry climate to create a magnificent rainforest garden in their grounds.
