Castledare Miniature Railway

August 7 @ 10:00 am - 1:00 pm

Join us at the historic Castledare Miniature railway for a morning of mini locos, train rides, and flourishing wetlands.

The Castledare Miniature Railway of Western Australia (Inc) came into being in early 1963 with the building of an experimental section of straight track approximately 30 metres. Castledare Boys Home, on the banks of the Canning River was chose as the location to build a railway 7¼” gauge railway.

The track runs for approximately 5kms from the Castledare Home grounds, across a creek, out through the wetlands to Wilson Park near Kent Street weir on the Canning River, and returns along the river banks to the Castledare grounds.

What to expect:

  • Views from the open train carriages of lush wetlands.
  • Close access to a variety of locomotive engines and gear.
  • A tour of the Loco sheds and work shops
  • Happy faces with big smiles (kids and adults too).

What to bring:

  • Your camera (of course).
  • Your own tripod, although consider how practical this might be.

Admission Cost: $7 per adult, $4 child (EFTPOS preferred).

Important: Bare feet are not permitted.
