Overview

All aboard at the Pemberton Railway Station for these return services which meander through towering Karri and Marri forests; over trestle bridges spanning rivers and streams along one of Australia's most majestic rail lines through to the Warren River Bridge. In spring (September and October) the forest is resplendent with colourful wildflowers. As you admire the breathtaking view on the journey your tram driver gives an informative commentary on the forest, railway line and history of the region; with a 15 minute stop at the Cascades for you to alight and experience the feel of the forest.

Once you get past the unfriendly ticker seller, this tram ride is worth the (rather costly) fare..... The driver gave a reasonable commentary..... Be sure to dress warmly if it is a chilly day....

The Pemberton Tramway takes you on a journey along the old forest railway line. The driver of this open tram gives a very interesting commentary as you travel along, crossing old trestle bridges and halting half way for a walk down to the river. This...More

The tram ride through the woods and countryside was very pretty although the engine noise is quite loud. Commentary from Adam was very funny and amusing. Great way to enjoy the scenery.

Booked in by phone. Trip was comfortable and gave a great opportunity to see the forest and some great railway bridges. Commentary was informative and the scenery was great. A very relaxing trip. Well worth the price.
