Located at Yeerongpilly in Brisbane, guided tours of the Aurizon Rail Weld Facility will include the operating facility as well machine exhibits and a Locomotive Tour. A sausage sizzle and cold drinks are included in the tour price.
Tours will commence at 1.30pm and will continue at half hour intervals. Each tour is restricted to a maximum of ten people. Attendees will need to book the specific time of the tour they wish to be on. Cost per person is $35.00
** Important safety note ** People with pacemakers will not be permitted in the weld shed and everyone attending will require closed-in shoes. As the facility tour will involve some walking as well as traversing stairs a moderate level of mobility will be required.
Parking will be offsite and a shuttle bus will be utilised to travel between the Aurizon facility and the carpark. For those attendees wishing to travel to and from the facility via train the shuttle bus will be picking up and dropping off from the Brisbane City Council South Regional Business Centre which is accessed via the pedestrian footbridge over Fairfield Road from the Yeerongpilly Railway Station.
