Great ride on the Cockle Train with both the steam engine and diesel in operation over Easter 2018.
Volunteers are all very friendly and helpful. Reasonable pricing and regular times of services to allow a look around Goolwa before heading back later in the afternoon.

Nice to ride on these old trains. The staff are friendly and add to the exprience. The train passes along the coastline the is rugged and beutiful. For $30 return it's well worth doing!

Back in time on the Steam Ranger Cockle Train leaving Victor Harbour for Goolwa. Lunch at the Corio Hotel in Goolwa makes a pleasant day. Take your time and enjoy.

A fun outing for the family, kids loved it, gave good commentary and some interactive service. You can go 1 way or return, very flexible options, Goolwa to Victor Harbour is about 35 mins, does run a steam train when not in fire season.

Such fun to travel once again on a train . A family group, all over 60 ,had a great time remembering our many trips to and from home to boarding school in NSW in the 60's . It was a day to reflect on the necessity of such partings and the benefits we all gained from the very real sadness of leaving home
