This special half-day tour transforms our Rack and Gorge and River and Rainforest tours into a winter Christmas celebration. Tasmania’s west coast has a beauty all its own in winter, so rug up and board your steam train in Strahan to enjoy cosy carriages, mulled wine, mince pies, and gifts for the children.
The Christmas in July tour operates on all services throughout the month. During your four-hour journey, you’ll see the dramatic wilderness landscapes of the west coast from the warmth and comfort of your festive Wilderness carriage. Your experience includes piping hot mulled wine, a Christmas-themed morning tea, light lunch and steaming tea and coffee throughout your journey.
Board the train in Strahan and settle into your festive, warm Wilderness Carriage for your Christmas-themed River and Rainforest tour.
