About Us

Hobbies are Our Business


Hello and welcome to FNQHobbys.

We’re a little family owned and run hobby shop in Mareeba

  in Far North Queensland, Australia.

This unique business is run by myself and my wife Sharon. 

We’ve been selling model trains since 2008 and have been ‘playing’  with them for 40 years,  so we really know our stuff!

We love to share our passion for model trains with other like-minded  people.

For us, the hobby comes before the business and we’ll run model  trains until our last breath!

More recently, I’ve been acquainted with the new world of

Digital Command Control (DCC) and thoroughly enjoying!

Our passion and business goal, is to provide the best service  we can to all our valued customers, both on-line and through the shop.

Our on-line buyers are our bread and butter,  but our boutique  store is well worth a visit.  

There’s so much to see and we’re always super happy to answer  any questions.

Not being in the retail hub of Mareeba helps keep the price down  on our stock. 

Although we don’t have the buying power of some larger competitors,

we will out do in service and expertise.

Hope to train-talk with you soon!

Cheers Mark
