Wonderful train ride alongside the beautiful Stringers Creek and through the gorge. The countryside and creek is beautiful. This is the best rail journey I have ever been on for scenery, atmosphere and all round fun.

This is the cutest little railway you'll come across. It doesn't take long to look around but I beg you to take your time to soak it all in. The staff are lovely and the environs around are something to explore and soak up. My pics probably tell it all. There is no cost and you're welcome to buy an... More

Had interstate visitors and took this trip. What a great way to spend an afternoon. Arrive in town from the trip, take stroll through the historic township and you could enjoy a meal or just an ice cream. Township is looking great at this time of the year

At $20 per adult and $15 concession for a return trip it was an enjoyable 1 hour return trip The carriages were very cool. The engine was sadly not steam. But a diesel locomotive. It was an enjoyable experience.

On a trip to Walhalla, we took opportunity to ride the WGR. The journey to Thomson and back was very scenic and took about 1.5 hours. The train is in very good condition and very clean. Great value.

Thank Jeff K
