Aboard a bogie flat wagon built in the 1890s, lovingly restored as a passenger carriage, the two hour return trip features…

  • forests

  • buttongrass plains

  • beautiful bay views

  • aboriginal middens

  • the site of the original Ida Bay township

  • the remains of a river steamer now slowly being swallowed by nature

  • an historic old cemetery where pioneers, the Tylers and the Jaegers, were laid to rest (a fascinating stop here)

One can arrange to take an early train ride down to Deep Hole Bay, spend the day amidst the beautiful surroundings and catch the last afternoon train back to Lune River Station. Deep Hole Bay, a part of the Ida Bay State Reserve, has a large shelter complete with BBQ facilities and toilets, so is a delightful area for a picnic. Or take a bush walk along the walking tracks to Southport Lagoon or Southport Bluff, both accessible from Deep Hole, in which case you will hop back on a later returning train.(booking essential)
