Join the West Coast Wilderness Railway team for afternoon high tea in January 2024 at Regatta Point Station, Strahan. This station-ary (see what we did there?) experience will transport you back in time to the golden age of rail travel.

Sit back and hear the stories of one man, Lindon, who once lived along the line. Listen as Lindon recounts life along the line, set to a soundscape created by the team at Gap in the Fence. While you listen, enjoy a delicious high tea, served as chapters in a story. Your meal has been thoughtfully prepared, and paired with three 15-minute audio experiences to create a unique story-telling experience like no other. 

Floating Scores is an audio project building a Tasmanian soundscape produced by Gap in the Fence in association with the Tasmanian Symphony Orchestra.

This is a stationary experience located at Regatta Point Station in Strahan

As an audio experience, other passengers enjoyment is important, so children (and grown ups!) are asked to respect the experience and remain reasonably quiet throughout the audio.

All experiences must be booked in advance and are onboard stationary carriages located at our stations. For same day bookings, please contact our ticketing team on +61 (0)3 64710100 to enquire about availability.

To book this station-based experience, please contact our staff on enquiries@wcwr.com.au or phone us on +61 (0)3 6471 0100.
