West Coast Wilderness Railway

Step back in history for a majestic rail journey deep into the Tasmanian western wilderness.

 In the late 1800s, hundreds of men and women were employed to build the impossible; a railway through the remote western wilderness to transport copper from Queenstown to the now-forgotten port of Teepookana and later, through to Strahan.

After a long career hauling heavy loads between mine and port, the rail was closed and eventually re-opened as a unique rail journey through the ancient rainforest. These days, visitors to the region can choose between several half and full-day rail journeys through ancient rainforest, stopping at stations along the line where short walks and other activities help to tell the story of this incredible place.
