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 went to Pemberton on a long weekend, as our daughter was preparing an assignment on the town. It was lovely imformative drive, but the March flies were quite annoying.

The Pemberton community has worked hard to keep this railway open after the WA government closed it many years ago. It's worth a look. You board a tram car and the driver takes you about 11 km deep into the forests crossing over several rivers...More

The tram ride took us on an hour and a half trip into the Forrest. I think guides name was Scott; he had a dry sense of humour that we found hilarious (Collingwood supporters may not agree). We stopped at a river and had a...More

No need to book the tramway...just turn up and buy a ticket. If there is more than one carriage worth, they will add on another. Our driver, Scott, gave a very informative commentary as we travelled along. We stopped off at Cascade Falls for fifteen...More

The ride is on a purpose-built tourist tram along the old logging railway. The trams are basic, but in good condition and give an open air forest experience. Commentary is interesting, but varies depending on the driver you get. The trip runs out to a...More

A fantastic piece of history and great way to see the forest. The kids loved riding the tram on the old train tracks. Going over the rivers on the old timber bridges was a highlight for them. The driver was very knowledgeable and gave a...More

Unfortunately we were a bit rushed for time and didn't get our timing right in order to go on the Pemberton Tramway. We did find the display of locomotives and other rolling stock worth the visit. The privately run tourist railway gives the visitor insight...More
