the last remaining bush tram operate in Southern-most Tasmania

Departing Ida Bay Station every two hours from 10am. This two hour (return) train journey travels the historic 7.3 km track, which was originally used to cart limestone to ships at Deep Hole. Sit back and relax in an open or closed carriage, while you journey through the scenic bush. There’s a brief stop at graveyard where your tour guide will tell you about some of the history. Once back on the train you’ll head down to Deep Hole, where you have about 15 minutes to walk around at the beach. Then hop back on the train and return back to the station while enjoying more of the scenery, and perhaps spot a seal swimming alongside the shoreline.
