Join the ACA SA Branch and SteamRanger Heritage Railway on the evening of Saturday 23rd July 2022, as our Christmas in July Dinner Excursion.

Departing Mount Barker in the late afternoon, our steam-hauled train will climb over the Southern Mount Lofty
Rangers. On the way, we will be calling at the town of Strathalbyn to pick up passengers before high-tailing it across
the plans, through the Mallee scrub. Over the towering bridges of Finniss, Black Swamp and Currency Creek then onto the historic river port of Goolwa.

Here we take a short stroll through the original railway cutting up to the historic Goolwa Hotel for a festive 3-course
meal before returning to the Goolwa Station. Our train will be waiting to commence its sprinted climb back up the ranges to Mount Barker arriving in the late evening.


The train departs Mount Barker Railway Station at 4.00 pm and returns by 11.30 pm.
