Crash Site

After reaching the top of Camp Mountain in May 1947, one train accelerated too quickly downhill and crashed at this site as the track curved sharply to the left.

 

16 people were killed as carriages telescoped into each other.

 

Today it still stands as Queensland's worst ever rail disaster, and the second most tragic rail disaster in Australia's history after Granville.
