Beaudesert Line

The 43 km-long line branches off the Beenleigh Line at a triangular junction immediately south of Bethania station 35 km south of Brisbane, then progresses generally south-west to Jimboomba and then generally south to its terminus at BeaudesertThe line, which carried passengers and agricultural produce, opened in 1885. The Beaudesert line connected to a tramway at the terminus, the Beaudesert Tramway, which was operated by the local shire council. The two-line tramway opened in 1902 and linked the railway to branches with termini at Lamington and Rathdowney.
