Welcome to South Australia's SteamRanger Heritage Railway

COVID-19 Response:

Due to the global COVID-19 Pandemic, in accordance with State and Federal Government restrictions, effective Tuesday 24th March 2020, all scheduled train services have been temporarily suspended to protect our staff, volunteers and the travelling public.

We will advise via our social media channels and this website of planned re-commencement of services once known. 

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.
