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.

No need to book the tramway...just turn up and buy a ticket. If there is more than one carriage worth, they will add on another. Our driver, Scott, gave a very informative commentary as we travelled along. We stopped off at Cascade Falls for fifteen...More

The ride is on a purpose-built tourist tram along the old logging railway. The trams are basic, but in good condition and give an open air forest experience. Commentary is interesting, but varies depending on the driver you get. The trip runs out to a...More

A fantastic piece of history and great way to see the forest. The kids loved riding the tram on the old train tracks. Going over the rivers on the old timber bridges was a highlight for them. The driver was very knowledgeable and gave a...More

Unfortunately we were a bit rushed for time and didn't get our timing right in order to go on the Pemberton Tramway. We did find the display of locomotives and other rolling stock worth the visit. The privately run tourist railway gives the visitor insight...More

Found the train/tram ride easy paced and watched the world go by. The guide was funny and informative. The scenery was beautiful and loved the 15 minute stop over. A little chilly in winter so rug up! Heard a few comments of unhappy customers but...More

There was limited commentary by the captain and the ride was long and quite boring during winter. Not worth the price and can skip this attraction if possible.More

Hi - sorry you did not enjoy your ride with us. We have just employed a new driver, who is still in training. Having never done this type of thing before he is still learning the commentary and I am sure he will get better...More

My family of five went on the morning tram ride and it was honestly not very interesting after the initial novelty wore off. Commentary provided was sparse and not very informative. The tram stopped once at the Cascades for a short 15min photo taking. I...More

The Pemberton tramway departs twice a day at 10:45AM and 2:00PM Mondays to Saturdays, and we opted for the 2PM ride as it better fitted our itinerary for the day. The tram crosses five bridges, with the driver slowing or stopping by at each of...More

I was expecting to see the tall trees but this tramway rumbles through pretty ordinary scrubby vegetation, stops at a bubbling stream, goes over a few wooden bridges and then goes backwards the same way it came in. Driver seemed a bit bored with the...More
