Ida Bay Railway





Take a step back in time with this charming journey. The two hour round trip runs from the Lune River station through buttongrass bushland to the banks of Ida Bay and then onto the old limestone pier at Deep Hole, for a beachside stop before returning to the station.

The SUMMER TIMETABLE runs the train EVERY DAY at 9.30AM, 11.30AM, 1.30PM & 3.30PM
