The spe­cial way to see Port

Port Douglas & Mossman Gazette - - HOLIDAY FUN -

A re­turn trip on board the Bally Hoo­ley from The Reef Ma­rina Sta­tion through to St. Crispin’s Sta­tion is a leisurely one hour trip. Departing the Ma­rina, en­joy a panoramic view over the har­bour, be­fore pass­ing through trop­i­cal man­groves set against stun­ning moun­tain ranges.

Af­ter a quick stop at the Mi­rage Coun­try Club and at QT Re­sort, the train heads on to­wards the pic­turesque St. Crispin’s Sta­tion, St. Crispin’s is lo­cated close to the Ra­mada, Ry­dges Reef and Pool re­sorts.

While the lo­co­mo­tive is un­cou­pled, and pre­pared for your re­turn jour­ney, you may like to en­joy a pic­nic lunch, re­fresh­ing drink or an ice cream while tak­ing in the grand lake view and the Mi­rage Golf Course.

Then it’s “All Aboard” for your re­turn jour­ney. En­joy! Please note The Bally Hoo­ley runs a steam lo­co­mo­tive on Sun­days and spe­cial oc­ca­sions, with the diesel-pow­ered lo­co­mo­tives op­er­at­ing on all other days. The Bally Hoo­ley op­er­ates seven days, and is also avail­able for char­ters and events.
