RailFest Mount Barker Railway Heritage Festival | 26 May 2024

RailFest 2024 – Mount Barker Railway Heritage Festival

A family-friendly open day at Mount Barker Railway Station, featuring steam locomotive-hauled shuttle train services* between Mount Barker and Bugle Ranges.

For one day, the Mt Barker Rail Festival will be hosted by SteamRanger at the Mt Barker railway station. The festival gives visitors the opportunity to ride on trains*, take a tour of the SteamRanger workshop facilities that are not usually open to the public and view the restoration and maintenance work undertaken on the SteamRanger heritage locomotives and rolling stock.

You’ll be able to see heritage locomotives and carriages on display, browse market stalls, purchase food from the food stalls and watch shunting demonstrations.

Ride on one of the heritage trains from Mt Barker to Philcox Hill, returning to Mount Barker.

Admission in to the depot will be paid at the gate on the day.
