Take a journey into railway history at the National Railway Museum, Australia's largest railway museum with over 100 exhibits representing State, Commonwealth and private railway operators on the three major rail gauges used in Australia.

Climb into the cabs of giant steam engines, walk through elegant carriages, enjoy free train rides and interactive and educational displays.

Why not take a ride on the Semaphore to Fort Glanville Tourist Railway? It runs:

  • Every Sunday and Public Holiday from October to April (inclusive)
  • Every Monday, Wednesday and Friday of the School Holidays in September/October, December/January, and April.

Steam trains will depart between 11am and 4pm, roughly every hour or at frequencies varied according to demand.
