Margate Train – The

Galleries, Museums and Collections

The Margate Train offers shopping with a difference at Margate, southern Tasmania. Margate is 20 minutes south of Hobart (19 kilometres) and a short drive south of Kingston.
The Margate Train – formerly known as the Tasman Limited – made its final rail journey on 28 July 1978. The Tasman Limited was built in England in 1950 and served as a passenger service between Hobart and Launceston until 1978.
The train’s carriages now house a variety of retail businesses including arts and crafts, bric-a-brac, a microbrewery and a buffet car offering espresso coffee and pancake parlour.
There is also a huge antique warehouse and second-hand shop here, located in an old IXL apple packing shed, as well as a children’s play area, toilets, baby change facility and plenty of car parking.

Due to current health advice on social distancing, please contact the business for the most up to date information regarding opening times and services.
