Australian Sugar Cane Railway

Bundaberg Steam Tramway Preservation Society Incorporated (BSTPS) trading as Australian Sugar Cane Railway (Previously: Botanical Gardens Railway or BGR) is located in the Botanical Gardens Bundaberg North, Queensland, Australia.

The society is a Not-For-Profit organisation operated and maintained by volunteers (NO paid employees).

The aim of the society is to Restore, Maintain and Operate Steam Locomotives that were utilised in the Bundaberg district to haul Sugar Cane to the areas Juice and Sugar Mills. While doing this it is also to bring awareness to present and future generations of the machinery used by our pioneering families.

The Steam Locomotives are fired on coal and operate on a 1km long 610mm gauge railway, constructed in 1986 and now maintained by BSTPS.
