SteamFest 2023

Festivals and Celebrations

12 Mar 2022 to 13 Mar 2023 Annual Event

We are planning a fantastic event for 11th, 12th and 13th March 2023 and hope to see everyone there.

What is SteamFest?- On the March long weekend in Tasmania, SteamFest brings history to life over three days with one of the biggest collections of working steam machinery in Australia, Steam train rides, exhibitions of pioneering skills showing how things were done in yesteryear, ploughing displays and a full wood chopping competition on Monday.

Plenty of kid’s entertainment plus lots and lots of art, craft and food stalls. And, of course, their Krauss steam loco running every half hour, all day long! Held in the Town of Murals and Home of SteamFest – Sheffield Tasmania.
