  • Loved it as a railfan this shows 1 of the only old passager lines left in tasmania with the others being Queenstown to regatta point and red water creek (station only)
  • We had good morning riding the train and a very good guide tour of the place. Well worth the money.
  • Excellent opportunity to get up close to exhibits and see restorations in progress. Numerous assets not available in many other similar sites.
  • A must go place. Make sure you book you ticket for train ride and reach according to the train schedule for a great experience of riding old train with steam engine.
  • A stunning railway museum and track locate just 10 minutes from the Spirit of Tasmania. A great range of steam and Diesel engines and heritage Tasmanian rolling stock. Worth a visit.
