In June 2021 Cruise Express invites you to embark upon a history making heritage rail journey around NSW by steam train.
The entire journey will be hauled by the Philadelphia built Baldwin-Mikado steam locomotive 5917, which entered service in 1952. This is travel as it used to be when steam ruled the rails and travel was a little more fun. Relax in comfortable seating cars with windows that open to give you a closer connection with the ever changing countryside.
Designed to take in lesser known and rarely visited destinations this leisurely six-day journey will take you places you’ve never thought to go.
Visit historic Tocal Homestead and soak in 176 years of history. Explore one of the last Aussie wool spinning mills at Nundle with historic machinery aged up to or exceeding 100 years old and enjoy lunch at the Peel Inn which first opened its doors in 1860.
History will be made when 5917 heads out for a stop at Premer (one of only two stations left on this line) followed by lunch at Binnaway. Dubbo brings a visit to the spectacular Taronga Western Plains Zoo and in Orange you’ll head away from the touristy areas to visit the charming town of Carcoar for lunch by Antica Australis. A definite highlight will be a farewell dinner at Philip Shaw Winery.
This never before offered historic mid-winter escape is fabulous, fun and thoroughly unique.
Fares for this six-day adventure, including accommodation, meals and touring highlights is available from $3,590 per person twin-share, and only $3,990 for solo travellers.
