PETERBOROUGH WAS A HERO OF THE 20TH CENTURY – A HISSING, STEAMING HUB OF MIGHTY LOCOMOTIVES SITTING AT THE CROSSROADS OF A GROWING NATION.
THE POWER OF STEAMTOWN
Each night, beneath the stars of the Southern Flinders, a light begins to glow beneath a mighty steam train. There’s a hiss of piston, a rush of steam, the cry of a guardsman – and an incredible industrial legacy slowly comes to life.
Peterborough’s Steamtown was once a vast rail operation where over 100 steam locomotives passed through each day before heading to all corners of Australia.
Today, that legacy is preserved – and you’re invited to experience it for yourself.
During the daylight hours, you can tour the sheds and the extraordinary heritage-listed ‘Roundhouse’ before getting hands-on with the heroic locos and luxury carriages. And at night be thrilled by the award-winning ‘Sound and Light Show’, a powerful railway story that plays out on a stage like no other.
