Southern Encounter

Adelaide Hills

From $76.00
Join SteamRanger on a fun-filled day, travelling on board our fully restored heritage train, from Mt Barker to Victor Harbor.

Leaving Mt Barker mid morning, the train first climbs up to the crest of the line and then winds down the eastern escarpment of the southern Mt Lofty Ranges.

Crossing the Angas River you then enter the historic township of Strathalbyn where many Scottish migrants settled in the early 1800s, influencing the early architecture which is still evident today. The town is well worth a visit to explore its well stocked antique shops and cafes.

The journey then across the plains and across the towering Currency Creek viaduct and on to Goolwa.

At Goolwa, the train draws alongside the river wharf and passengers alighting here have over four hours to explore local attractions, have lunch on the riverside, visit the Steam Exchange Brewery in the old goods shed or take a short river cruise.

Beyond Goolwa the train the heads onto Port Elliot and then along the crashing surf to Victor Harbor for a three hour stopover.

The train then returns to Mt Barker in the late afternoon, returning by 6pm.
