The Coal Creek Community Park and Museum Bush Tramway is a narrow gauge railway similar to many that operated in mining and forestry areas in the late 1800s and early 1900s to transport timber to the mines for pit - props, coal from the mines to the railhead, or timber from the forest to the timber mill. It has been built maintained and operated by a volunteer group,
and is a popular attraction at Coal Creek Community Park and Museum .The group possesses three locomotives. The stream locomotive is a Bundaberg fowler, made under license from John Fowler & Co Leeds UK by the Bundaberg Foundry, Queensland in 1952. There were only eight of these locos ever built, and the one at Coal Creek after working at Bingera Sugar Mill near Bundaberg for 20 years was purchased by a private museum near Bundaberg before being bought be Coal Creek Community Park and Museum in 1996.
