West Coast Wilderness Railway
West Coast Wilderness Railway Review
A former rack-and-pinion train line carrying ore is now the restored West Coast Wilderness Railway, which makes the 35-km (22-mi) journey between Queenstown and Strahan. The line passes through one of the world's last pristine wilderness areas, as well as through historic settlements and abandoned camps, across 40 bridges and wild rivers, and up and down steep gradients. Tickets are from A$129 including lunch to A$210 for the luxurious premier class, where wine and afternoon tea is also included for the five-hour round trip (one-way by train, return by bus).
