Best Railways in Tasmania

Local Recommendations from our My Guide Tasmania team

Railway journeys in Tasmania are a visit to the past with the last regular passenger train finishing in 1978. You can visit a railway museum at Don River Railway and wander around the large display of steam and diesel engines.

Discover the stories of the pioneers who laboured in harsh conditions to build the railways. Take a trip on Australia's southernmost railway from the end of which you can take a stroll to a remote bay. Marvel from a steam locomotive at the unyielding terrain on the West Coast through which railways were built, including an Abt rack and pinion system.
