Tasmania’s West Coast Wilderness Railway is a unique railway journey through the ancient rainforest that tells the story of rogues and rivals fighting for a share of untold riches. Enjoy experiences along the way, disembarking along your journey at various remote stations in the heart of the rainforest.
When booking your rail journey, you are offered a choice of two comfortable carriage types. Heritage Carriages provide upholstered seating and snacks available for purchase along the way, whilst Wilderness Carriages offer fully inclusive catering and a welcoming glass of Tasmanian sparkling wine onboarding and access to the carriage balcony.
As you pass breath-taking scenery, only accessible by our railway, you are invited to breathe and soak in the ancient rainforest. Our guides will share fascinating stories of the hardships of the railway’s construction and the men, women, and children that called the surrounding wilderness their home.
The train stops at remote wilderness stations along the route which offer activities including a rainforest walk, viewing the train being turned on a manual turntable, panning for gold, tastings of wild honey, and stunning photo opportunities.
