Beaudesert Tramway

Passenger Tickets

Dave Elsmore

In 1902 The tramway opened linking Beaudesert to Tabooba Junction which then ran to Rathdowney and Lamington. The tramway was owned and operated by the Beaudesert Shire Council and initiated by the Tabragalba Divisional Board in 1899.

At the time it was only one of three in the State.

 

 

Nine Stations were built and numbered in turn from Beaudesert station.
