The Picnic Train

Kiama Picnic Train – Saturday 5th & Sunday 6th October

Join us for one of our classic rail tours from Sydney’s magnificent Central Station along the picturesque South Coast Line to the buzzing seaside town of Kiama.

Our Spring 2019 season kicks off with special guest locomotive 3265 — which will work the Kiama Picnic Train for one weekend only. The C32 Class were used regularly on the South Coast Line when in service for the NSW Railways. This is a rare chance to ride behind 3265 on a day tour.

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, 6 October.
