Open carriage trip
Took the open carriage trip, interesting scenery, make sure you grab one or more of their blankets to keep warm in the cooler weather. No tea or coffee available as advertised, but cool drinks available. Ok for a trip and worth seeing, helps the volunteers fund raise to make the attractions

Great fun with fabulous scenery.
A memorable travel experience not to be missed. Features refreshments from the buffet car and provides comfortable seating and wonderful landscapes.

Magical experience
This was an absolute treasure! The setting was stunning, the volunteers on the train were professional but heart felt and lovely, the food was excellent and the overall experience was truly magical. It was romantic for couples or fun for the whole family. A definite must even if you drive all the way from Perth to do it.
