Pine Rivers Model Train and Hobby Expo

Our annual Expo will be on Sat-Sun 14-15 August 2021 (9 AM - 4 PM daily) at the Strathpine Community Centre, 199 Gympie Rd Strathpine Qld 4500. After the cancellation of all of the SE Qld train shows last year due to Covid, we are looking forward to a bumber event for our hobbyists and the general public.

The Expo will appeal to families and children as well as serious modellers. See passenger and freight trains from various countries wind their way through miniature cities, towns, tunnels, bridges, scenery and industries.

As well as showcasing many diverse model railway layouts, the Expo will have a wide variety of shops with new and pre-loved items, modelling technique demonstrations, Lego displays, Thomas the Tank Engine, opportunities for kids to control model trains, plus other hobbies such as boats, tanks, radio-control, wargaming, miniature figures and dolls houses.Also, a raffle, a well-stocked canteen and sausage sizzle.Entry is subject to compliance with our Covid requirements.

To thank them for their service to our communities and Country, free entry will be provided to currently serving frontline fire-fighters, paramedics and police officers, as well as Navy, Army and Air Force personnel, plus their spouses and children, on production of a current government ID.
