Illawarra Light Railway Museum

The whole family will love cheering and waving from the steam train as it travels past the station and navigates its way through the quiet bushland setting in Albion Park. The museum also has tram and miniature train rides that let the children experience a piece of history that was enjoyed at fairgrounds by their parents and grandparents alike.

The grounds of the museum are a great place to escape, the kids can play in the playground while the adults relax in the barbecue area.

Steaming days when the Museum is in full operation including demonstrations, working engines and rides are held on the second Sunday of each month, Sundays of Public Holiday weekends and the fourth Sunday of January.

Take the opportunity to go back in time and stroll through the historical Museum.
Entry to the grounds is free. Donations are most welcome.
Tickets for train rides can be purchased from the main platform station.
