Celebrate the New Year in Goolwa OR Victor Harbor!

Join us this Christmas, as SteamRanger, presents South Australia's first ever illuminated train journey!

Experience our 1950's Redhen Railcar fleet, like never before, as they are decked out inside and out with Christmas lights and decorations.

The "New Years Eve Train", will depart Strathalbyn at 7.00pm, and will travel to Victor Harbor, allowing our passengers a breathtaking sunset journey along the beach between Port Elliot and Victor Harbor, arriving in town with ample time for the family fireworks at 9.30pm.

The train will depart Victor Harbour at 10.30pm for Goolwa, where passengers may alight and enjoy Goolwa's festivities, and the fireworks at midnight off the Hindmarsh Island bridge.

The train will then depart Goolwa at 12.30am, arriving back at Strathalbyn around 1.30am.

The Southern Lights & New Years Eve Trains are proudly supported by Bendigo Bank and Bunnings Warehouse, Victor Harbor
