Discover one of the world’s great railway journeys! Now, after 40 years, the West Coast Wilderness Railway in Tasmania is running again. You’re able to travel through one of the world’s last pristine wilderness areas crossing 40 bridges, wild rivers, and climb over 200 meters on a fascinating journey between Queenstown and Strahan. You’ll also have the opportunity to visit an old gold mining settlement, explore the mine by candlelight and pan for gold in the river.
Due to extreme weather conditions the train will not be operating into or out of Queenstown until July 01, 2011. During this period the train will operate from Strahan to Dubbil Barril,up to the King River Gorge, returning to Dubbil Barril for lunch and then onwards to Strahan in both Tourist and Premier Carriage.
