WE ARE RECRUITING PARKLAND EXPLORER DRIVERS!
Operated by a team of dedicated volunteers, Roma Street Parkland's brand new trackless train, The Parkland Explorer, takes visitors on an interpretive journey of this premier parkland in the centre of Brisbane. We are currently looking for new volunteer drivers and conductors to join the team.
Full training is provided, with drivers requiring a Queensland Driver’s license and fulfillment of a functional assessment. In appreciation of your service, volunteers enjoy a range of benefits including social outings, uniform, training and information sessions and a reward and recognition program.
Further information and an application form can be found at City Parklands
Departing locations for the train can be found on the Roma Street Parkland map.
Please note that as the train is operated by volunteers, these times are subject to change. Inclement weather may also impact operation hours. If you’re interested in a group booking for the Parkland Explorer or to hire the train outside of hours, please call the Roma Street team on 1300 137 468 for fees and details.
