Modelling the Railways of Queensland Convention
The Convention is held every two years in Brisbane and brings together modellers and railfans with an interest in Queensland's railways and tramlines. Attendees come from every state in Australia and occasionally from overseas.
Essentially a one-day (Saturday) convention, events include clinics and other presentations, modelling demonstrations, layouts, trade stands and a group dinner. A visit to a local rail heritage attraction and/or local model railways typically occurs on the Sunday.
The 2012 Convention (4-5 August) was held at the Evans Deakin Building, Mt Gravatt Showgrounds. This venue works well for modelling conventions, has ample parking and is handy to public transport. Details on the Conventions page.
This web site was created as an extension of the convention to promote both the Convention itself and the modelling of Queensland's many and varied railways.
