Don River Railway

Passenger trains disappeared from Tasmania some time ago, except this one, a full-size loco service from the Don Village Station to Coles Beach each day from Wednesday to Sunday inclusive.

After leaving Don Village, the route of the Don River Railway winds its way along the Eastern banks of the picturesque Don River, passing Restoration Siding where old vehicles are awaiting their turn for restoration at the hands of the craftsmen. During the 30-minute return journey, you will pass through a nature reserve and you will also see many places of historical interest.

A steam locomotive pulls the train on most Sundays and public holidays and most of January (other than high fire danger days). For the remainder of the year, weekday trains are run with a vintage diesel locomotive or rail car. The collection of steam and diesel locomotives and rolling stock is open for inspection at the Don Village Station, where there is also a souvenir and model shop.



No train services on Mondays and Tuesdays, except Monday of long weekends.
