Robertson Day Train

7 November 2020 LIMITED SEATS!

$320* pp twin-seating (Solo travellers on request)

Welcome to a fun day out by steam train. The 1952 built Baldwin-Mikado steam locomotive 5917 will haul a heritage train from Sydney all the way to Robertson in the Southern Highlands. Sit back and relax in your private heritage carriage as the onboard crew provide refreshments and you take in the glorious views! A highlight will be the long haul from Unanderra to Summit Tank where the train will tackle some of the steepest gradients anywhere in NSW.

You’ll enjoy lunch at the Robertson Public House and there is plenty of time to shop or explore before the train returns to Sydney. This is also the perfect time of year to see the Waratahs in full bloom. Come with us on a fabulous day out!
