Golden West Tour

Our original and most popular rail tour – we enjoy the dramatic sandstone cliffs of the great dividing range at the beginning and end of our journey, the vineyards of the Hunter Valley and Orange, and we have the rare opportunity to travel on freight lines only across the Liverpool Plains from Werris Creek on the way to Orange. A real treat is the spectacular scenery in the Capertee Valley on the way to Rylstone

Tour Dates
Riverina Tour

The second adventure that we designed is our Riverina Rail Tour heading south from Sydney into the heart of Australia’s ‘food bowl’. You’ll receive a warm welcome from the communities of the Riverina, and learn a lot about the produce that they grow, some of their challenges and innovations. You will also travel on some rail lines which don’t have scheduled passenger services, making this a real adventure.

Tour Dates
North Coast Tour

The newest of our tours, the North Coast Rail Tour is fast becoming one of our favourites. Every day there is a different view of the NSW coastline. Our guests have told us that they saw the North Coast in a way they never have before. You’ll discover the beautiful Hastings River at Port Macquarie, the breathtaking hinterland rainforest and eclectic community of the Northern Rivers region, the crystal clear creeks and uncrowded surf beaches of the Macleay Valley Coast, and the history and heritage of Maitland & Morpeth.
