This experience is currently unavailable and will return in 2024. Please see our website for details on our current timetabled departures. This half-day (5 hour) journey takes you from the shores of Macquarie Harbour into the ancient rainforest and mountains of Tasmania’s rugged west coast. Hear stories of the landscape and wilderness from your onboard guide and wonder how the men and women of the rail once carved their lives out of this harsh environment. Admire the extraordinary engineering achievement as you cross Iron Bridge, and see the remains of the 244-metre trestle bridge at Quarter Mile. Stop at remote stations and take in the western wilderness. A short walk through the cool, temperate rainforest at Dubbil Barril station is a must before returning to Strahan. Please note: West Coast Wilderness Railway will close temporarily for maintenance from 5 June, resuming service in time for the 23/24 peak season. Further details on timetables etc can be found at
