Place Design Group was commissioned by the Gympie Regional Council to revitalize the Gympie Historic Railway Precinct, the operational base for the historic rail service – the Mary Valley Rattler.

The Master Plan incorporated forward-thinking strategic planning and implementation tools coupled with simple landscape design to create a comprehensive master plan. The landscape design integrated classic materials with modern highlights to create an all abilities parkland experience. Place Design Group’s design concept retained and reinstated key historic rail relics including a static installation displaying a locomotive and rail carriage and feature train turntable. The Master Plan created a comprehensive framework for the community and Council that inspired investment and revitalization for the Gympie Historic Railway precinct.
