Stayed in one of the converted carriages (Flyer) with our 3yr old and 6 yr old. Our boy was in heaven, especially with the frequent trains passing under the bridge on the property. Staff were very friendly. Pool was very well used by us on hot afternoons and located just across from the carriages. Kids had fun checking for eggs...

Dined at Rattlers in the actual train. The Christmas menu was lovely and the atmosphere was festive. The service was well planned and the meal flowed beautifully. Thoroughly recommend for a great dining experience.

We thoroughly enjoyed our recent stay at Carriageways. The accommodation was so unique with every effort made to create the ambiance of the inside of an old train. Loved the way most of the train details were kept intact but this did not diminish the comfort aspect at all. The surrounds were gorgeous and we even woke up to mystical...

Fantastic accommodation amidst beautiful countryside. The crooks park homestead is our families preferred weekend retreat. The on-site rattlers restaurant offers a tantalising degustation for a great price, Staff are friendly and professional. This wasn't our first visit and most certainly will not be our last!

We stayed in a carriage for a couple of nights on a family adventure. Our 6 year old was not sure where we were going, so was excited to find we’d be staying on a train! The furniture has been updated since their photos were taken. We were pleasantly surprised to find modern furniture, rather than cane. The carriages are...

The pool was murky green even though it was winter and too cold to swim it just let's the place down. With a little bit of love this could...

Wonderful, brilliant, fantastic and delightful was our stay at Park Carriageway at Dungog in the Hunter Valley. The train carriages were really comfortable, not to mention memorable. I used to ride in these as a child in Sydney when they ran on the Cityrail network. They were in service for some 75 years and their home here is a brilliant...

we stayed in the spa lodge which was very well set out, having all the amenities you would need for a self catered stay. Great view of rolling hills and bushland. The 6 course meal in a converted train carriage was perfect as were the staff serving our meal. Well done Carriageways.
