The Kiama Picnic Train

9:25am - 7:20pm Save to calendar

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. Hauling the Kiama Picnic Train will be our legendary Baldwin steam locomotive, 5917- built in the 1950's for the New South Wales Government Railways. There will be no buffet service on board this time due to Covid-19 restrictions, therefore passengers are advised to bring a picnic lunch. After arrival in kiama you will have plenty of time to enjoy the many charms of this picturesque coastal town. If lunching in kiama, please book beforehand to avoid disappointment. We have set up new guidelines in conjunction with NSW Health that will enable us to run during this coronavirus period. The Picnic train is committed to bringing a little bit of an escape back to 2020, to make a booking visit
