Welcome to South Australia's SteamRanger Heritage Railway

COVID-19 Response:

With the easing of Stage 2 Restrictions, limited Cockle Train services will recommence for the June Long Weekend (Saturday, Sunday & Monday), and then operate on Sunday's 21st and 28th June only. Please note that  trains will have a maximum capacity of 140 passengers, and there are no online or advanced bookings available at this stage. Long distance services from Mt Barker will recommence once further restrictions have been lifted.

Stay safe, and we look forward to hosting you aboard our services in the future.


SteamRanger Heritage Railway operates a number of different heritage steam and diesel hauled tourist trains between Mt Barker in the Adelaide Hills, up over the crest of the southern Mt Lofty Ranges, down to Strathalbyn and on through the coastal holiday towns of Goolwa and Port Elliot to the tourist resort town of Victor Harbor.

Trains operate on up to 140 days a year and are manned by volunteers from the Australian Railway Historical Society, who are also responsible for maintenance of the rail line and the heritage locomotives and carriages.
