Certificate of Excellence
Attraction details
Reviewed June 1, 2014

What a great place, we had an impromptu guide to help us around and he was very friendly and knowledgable.
If you are a railway buff the exhibits are great even though some are still a work in progress, i.e. a couple of the rail carriages are still in the middle of being repaired and renovated. Even though hearing about the history of the place and seeing old trains and carriages was great. A couple of the rail motors that they have there were the same as the ones I used to catch to work from Richmond, NSW. I used to love the old gas heaters in them on those cold Richmond mornings.
If you are into trains and rail stuff you have to go see this place, fantastic.

The volunteer workers here are fantastic,very knowledgeable about all the trains in their yard.They take you on a guided tour of the Roundhouse and detail the trains era and former life.Kids will enjoy this place,the Roundhouse is just like Thomas the Tank's!

I hadn't seen a rail roundhouse before and found it quite interesting. The old passenger carriage brought back many memories.

First visit - great friendly volunteers, helpful and informative, not over bearing - plenty of time to wander over the exhibits, and relive my early travel days (before diesel, non-reclining seats, chemical foot warmers) - real behind the scenes look at railways and travel of yesteryear

We were pleasantly surprised by this hidden treasure in junee. Not even really into trains but still found the history of the place amazing. It was great being able to get on the trains and walk through them. I love the mail train so fascinating. An amazing attraction considering it is run by volunteers. Keep up the great work!
