Travel through the rolling hills of the Strzelecki Ranges on Heritage rolling stock. We regularly run Victorian 1928 Diesel Electric Rail Motors, 1955 South Australian Red Hen rail Motors and Victorian 1950's Y class locomotive hauling passenger cars constructed in 1910 and 1926.
Take a tour through the 1908 built heritage listed Korumburra Station. Enjoy a cuppa in the refreshment room on train running days. A train trip to Leongatha to visit a cafe or a park is a nice way to spend a Sunday.
Charter trains for groups, parties, weddings, workplace functions and tour groups are available.
South Gippsland Tourist Railway is the home of the Dream Come True Program where you get to drive the train.
Let your children or grandchildren experience what train travel used to be like. Opening windows, the clickety clack of the rails and the gentle rocking motion. On the rail motors a view out the front or the rear windows of the train is a novelty for children.
Wildlife such as wallabies, kangaroos, echidnas and wombats live in the bush along the line. You might spot a fox or wave to the cows who are happily grazing in the lush grassy hills. There are parks close to Leongatha station. A beautiful park with excellent playground and picnic facilities is a short walk from the station. Ask for a map when you purchase your train ticket.
The train goes along at a leisurely pace allowing you to enjoy the scenery, look at the farming activities and arrive relaxed at the towns of Korumburra or Leongatha.
The South Gippsland Railway operates between Korumburra and Leongatha over a 15 kilometre section of the former Great Southern Railway which once stretched almost 250 kilometres from Melbourne through Korumburra, Leongatha, Foster and Yarram to Woodside.
