10. Day Trip to Eumundi Markets

The Eumundi markets I am told are held Wednesdays and Saturdays. There is no longer a morning train service to Eumundi I was told, but on checking the Translink website it appears there is.

Brisbane to Eumundi
For Wednesday 11th January
Take train GMPN-X - Roma Street to Gympie North Express

Depart Central Station: 9.37am; Platform 3. Central Railway Station, Cnr Edward And Ann Street, Brisbane City
Arrive Eumundi Station: 11.49am; Eumundi Railway Station, Memorial Drive, Eumundi

Fare is Concession, $12.80 each way. With Go Card it's $7.04 (off peak) and $8.80 peak times.

Return Trip
It looks like there are two options open to me, either the ROMA-X - Gympie North to Roma Street Express which leaves Eumundi at 2.09pm and runs express to Brisbane arriving at Central Railway Station at 4.17pm, or the 6.41pm ROMA-X - Gympie North to Roma Street Express leaving Eumundi at 6.41pm and arriving at Central at 8.39pm.

Again, it's a case of stay a short while to get back at a reasonable time or hang around till all hours and get back much later than I want to. What a pain. It means I'll only have 2 hours from the train station to the markets and back. Maybe there's a bus that would make it a more reasonable journey. Sigh.
