Yarraman Station Park is the historical location of the former train station. Only the old sign remains on site as the station building was relocated to the Yarraman Heritage Centre in the town's CBD. Yarraman Weir Park is about 500 m from Station Park. Please leave your pets at home when visiting.

How to get there: Yarraman is about 120 km north of Toowoomba. From Yarraman town centre, take Browne Street (which turns into Millar Street) and you will find the Yarraman Station Park at the end of the road. Park your car and get ready to go back in time while you make your way along the Weir Trail Circuit.

If transporting bicycles is an issue, Pursers Coaches--based in Murgon--operate a coach service from Caboolture to Yarraman. Two train schedules also link Brisbane with Caboolture.

Facilities: Parking, picnic tables, picnic shelter, horse stables, toilet. Due to the isolated location, there is no drinking water supply.
