All aboard at the Pemberton Railway Station for these return services which meander through towering Karri and Marri forests; over trestle bridges spanning rivers and streams along one of Australia's most majestic rail lines through to the Warren River Bridge. In spring (September and October) the forest is resplendent with colourful wildflowers.

As you admire the breathtaking view on the journey your tram driver gives an informative commentary on the forest, railway line and history of the region; with a 15 minute stop at the Cascades for you to alight and experience the feel of the forest.

We really enjoyed the tram ride today. Despite it being a very hot day it was not too bad on the tram as we were in the shade most of the time. The driver have and enjoyable and interesting commentary which was very informative. The views were lovely and the little walk in the middle of the trip was nice.... More

The Pemberton Tramway meanders through the forest from Pemberton, past the Cascades and on as far as the bridge over the Warren River. The driver gives an interesting and entertaining commentary along the way. There is a stop at the Cascades for about 15 minutes to walk down to view the Cascades and take photos.. If travelling with children, care... More

My husband loves trains. We had recently taken the Indian Pacific from Sydney to Perth and were on a driving tour of WA. We had read about the Pemberton Tramway in the Lonely Planet and called ahead to book our tickets. The lady on the phone assured me that she would 'add our names to the log'..no pre-payment required. When... More

The tramway leaves from Pemberton railway station twice a day. The trip takes 1 and 3/4 hours. It was a delightful trip to the warren river. The driver gave a comprehensive and informative commentary about the history of the area as the tramway passes the saw mill and through the karri,jarrah and marri forest. There was a stop of 15...

A real novelty; tramway takes you into the forest and you get a good deal of information about the timber industry of the area from knowledgeable driver. If you have a bad back, take a cushion or something to sit on as the seats are wooden slats. A bit pricey but would definitely recommend.

Pros: This is an interesting and different experience - the tram driver gives you some great commentary. Kids will probably enjoy it. Cons: Only leaves twice a day (10.45am & 2pm - not on Sundays). Not great value in my opinion at more than $30 an adult (40 adults in our train = $1200....but perhaps I don't appreciate what it... More

This is the second time we have done this tour and we recommend it. Tram ride has a brief stop off to take pics and stretch the legs. Driver very kindly allowed the kids to set off the train whistle... nice touch. Drivers joked were a tad 'lame', but at least he was bubbly and happy. Would recommend for all... More

The slow trip across the main road and up to the Falls where it stops for a 15 minute walk . The operator has a wealth of information concerning the forest and the old milling operations. Travelling slowly across a few bridges allows plenty of time for photos. We were lucky enough to see an emu running down the track.
