Come and Live in the Past!

The Kiama Picnic Train

 

 

Come and live in the past on one of our classic rail tours from Sydney’s magnificent Central Station along the picturesque South Coast Line to the bustling seaside town of Kiama.

 

Our flagship Baldwin steam locomotive, 5917 will be back working the Kiama Picnic Train on this delightful day tour — steam-only for that true steam train experience!

 

You’ll have plenty of time for a relaxing lunch at a variety of cafés or restaurants in Kiama, or enjoy the many charms of this picturesque coastal town. Take a walk up to the famous Kiama Blowhole, relax at the Surf Beach or browse the Historic Terrace Houses. The popular Kiama Seaside Markets are on Sunday, 17 November.
