Start School Holidays on the right track

Sunday 25 September and Sunday 9 October

A trip to the Blue Mountains could be just the answer! Less than 90 minutes from most parts of Sydney, Valley Heights Rail Museum is the perfect solution. The Museum’s Open Days on Sunday 25 September 2022 and Sunday 9 October 2022 fit just perfectly with the break from school. With a Steam Train ride* included in admission you can be guaranteed a great day out for young and old. Admire the many rare exhibits and learn about the role of the railways in developing the NSW Central West. Allow time for a cold drink, traditional meat pie or barista coffee in the café and to browse the shop for an unusual gift or souvenir. Booking is preferred so get in early for your choice of one of six rides*, hourly from 10:30 until 14:30, with last ride* at 15:15.


Look for the turn off from the Great Western Highway, and drop in on your way east or west! Plenty of parking on site with just a short walk to the main entrance.

* Subject to operational factors e.g. adverse weather, breakdown, crew/rolling stock unavailability, track conditions etc.
