Christmas in July

Festivals and Celebrations

1 Jul 2024 to 21 Jul 2024 Annual Event

The Off Season is the best time to get out and explore our West Coast heritage and wilderness. This year, our winter experiences are included in your normal journey ticket and we’re bringing Christmas in July back to Queenstown!
Hop onboard the Lynchford Express for a 20-minute heritage steam trip through Queenstown, before disembarking at Lynchford Station.

At the station, take in your surrounds, soak up the Christmas-themed station decorations, pan for gold like the old timers and enjoy a festive nibble or mulled wine in Con’s Cribroom before returning to Queenstown onboard.

Our special school holiday experiences are open to everyone onboard our existing journeys, so to experience Christmas in July onboard, book your Lynchford Express ticket today!


Cafe Non Smoking Public Toilet Shop / Gift Shop


From AU$45.00

Prices are for Lynchford Express departures. Christmas in July event experience is included in all Lynchford Express journeys during the event dates.
