A romantic day out for two - Rack and Gorge Journey
Wilderness Carriage | 2 Adults | $378.00
This half-day journey guarantees your loved one a romantic day out while enjoying the beauty of the Western Wilderness. The Rack and Gorge journey ups the romance with a guaranteed steam locomotive travelling along the top of the breathtaking King River Gorge and through cool-temperate rainforest.
The Wilderness Carriage is the perfect way to treat someone, with a glass of Tassie sparkling wine on arrival, access to the carriage balcony, and a progressive meal served in between remote station stops, where passengers disembark to stretch their legs and take in their surrounds.
Spoil the puffer nutter in your life - Queenstown Explorer Experience
Wilderness Carriage | 1 Adult | $259.00
This one is truly for the train enthusiast, history buff or photography fanatic in your life! A 9-hour experience will see them board in Strahan and take in the heritage of the entire 35km stretch of line in both directions! Our live commentary tells the story of the unique Rack and Pinion system that brings people to us from all over the world.
The Wilderness Carriage ensures that your passionate loved one has access to the carriage balcony, the perfect vantage point for capturing the best photographs to record their journey. Furthermore, their tummies will be kept happy with a series of yummy treats served in between remote station stops and lunch at Queenstown Station. Stopping at each station along the line, they’ll get to learn more about the railway’s history and experience the surrounding rainforest.
One for the whole family - River and Rainforest Journey
Heritage Carriage | Family Ticket (2A+2C) | $270.00
The River and Rainforest is the perfect train journey for families… It provides a variety of environments to take in, starting in beautiful Strahan and taking in the harbourside and nearby farmland (look out for the alpacas!) before heading into the rainforest and following the King River into the railway line’s halfway point. At just 4-hours, it’s also a good length for little people to enjoy and the multiple station stops throughout the journey provides a great opportunity to break up the journey and stretch those little legs.
Grown ups will also enjoy the live commentary, getting an understanding of how and why this line was built 125 years ago and what makes it so special today. The Heritage Carriage provides booth seating, perfect for a family, warm blankets and a personal carriage steward to answer all those big and little questions along the way.
