About Pichi Richi Railway
Watch the ancient landscape of the Flinders Ranges roll past as you relax in the style of a bygone era. Built in the 1870s, this unique railway is the last remaining operating portion of the "Old Ghan" narrow-gauge line. After being abandoned in the 1950's, the Railway was revived in 1974 by the volunteers of the Pichi Richi Railway Preservation Society who have progressively restored a remarkable collection of heritage locomotives and carriages. Trains operate March - November. Visit our website for timetable and bookings.

Excellent heritage experience for the whole family. We loved watching the train pull out of the station, on its way back to the yard.

This was such a great experience. The train itself and the scenery are enough of a drawcard but the volunteers just make it so special! They all love what they do and it shows. Keep up the good work! Carmel

Great weekend in Quorn. Railway trip to Pt Augusta is fantastic. Stayed at the Quorn Caravan Park and such a great park to stay at. Very quiet and all those beautiful gum trees.
