South Australia's first and only Sound & Light Show! The Steamtown Heritage Rail Centre is a 'Museum with a big difference' showing the most awesome Sound & Light Show.




Steamtown Heritage Rail Centre


Once South Australia’s busiest regional railway hub employing more than 1,000 people who looked after more than 100 passing trains every day, the old depot and workshop is now home to Australia’s most unique and fascinating Heritage Railway museum.

You’ll find Australia’s only operational triple gauge turntable, a wide range of historic rolling stock including elegant steam trains, powerful diesel locomotives, unique passenger trains and freight trains, all exhibited in original settings in the heritage listed roundhouse and original work sheds.

After dark, Steamtown hosts South Australia’s only Sound and Light Show, a fabulous sound and visual spectacular about railway history in Australia and Peterborough. Guests sit comfortably in a historic railway carriage, once a first class sleeper on the East West route between Sydney and Perth, and are transported visually through a 1 hour sound and light show that you will thoroughly enjoy. Bookings essential. Low Season conditions apply (Nov-March)
