Small Group Railway Tours

Preliminary Information

We have teamed up with one of Sydney’s leading small group ecotour operators to offer you a sensational three day ‘railway themed’ ecotour to the Hunter Valley and Blue Mountains of NSW.

You will be travelling in a luxury Mercedez Benz Sprinter with a maximum of ten passengers and we will be departing four times per year. See below for proposed departure dates. All bookings will be via our ebay store so look under ‘tours’.

Our three day, two night personally guided tour is fully accommodated and includes most meals. At only A$390 per person, it is exceptional value.
