Semaphore Steam Train | Spring School Holidays

The Semaphore Steam Train will run every day during the Spring School Holidays except for Tuesdays and Thursdays.

The National Railway Museum operates a 2km long 457 mm gauge railway from Semaphore to Fort Glanville which departs from the foot of the jetty at the end of the popular Semaphore Road cafe strip, and parallels the Esplanade and the sand dunes of one of Adelaide’s most popular swimming beaches, before passing through the dunes near historic Fort Glanville at Point Malcolm.

Steam trains will depart between 11am and 4pm, roughly every hour or at frequencies varied according to demand.

The railway operates:

  • Every Sunday and Public Holiday from end of September to end of April (inclusive)
  • Daily during the September & April school holidays EXCEPT Tuesdays and Thursdays
  • Daily from and including 26 December to the end of the January school holidays

Prices for the train ride are as follows:
