Wascoe Siding

Open days

When

Wascoe Siding is open to the public on the first Sunday of every month (except January). You are invited to bring family and friends to picnic in the grounds and ride on the trains (subject to weather and applicable COVID restrictions).

The railway

Several trains operate continuously or on demand from 10:00am until 3:00pm during our open days.

Safety

All persons who ride on the trains must wear fully enclosed footwear to ensure their safety.

Prices

From April 2021, there is an entry fee to enter the site. The charges are:

Children up to 3 years - free

Children 4 to 16 years - $2

Persons 17 and up - $5

Pensioners/concession holders - $2

Payment will be upon entry at the front gate via EFTPOS or non-contact methods only. Unfortunately, we will not be able to accept cash.

Train rides tickets are $15 per carriage, not per person. Each carriage can seat up to 4 persons from the same group. This is due to COVID restrictions. Tickets are available from the ticket office adjacent to the kiosk. EFTPOS facilities are available for easy payment.

Each train carriage will be sanitised before and after each ride.

Weather

Every effort is made to run on open days. However due to the nature of the models and the open riding cars, running will be cancelled if the weather is wet or preceding heavy rain has made the park very wet. Updates will be posted on our Facebook site.

Undercover tables

We have 6 undercover tables that are available for bookings. A booked table will guarantee exclusive use of the table for the day. Multiple tables may be booked.

Note: commencing April 2021, our undercover tables will once again be available for bookings. However, due to COVID distancing requirements, we can't offer single tables to be booked. Instead, 2 tables form the basis for a single booking. That means 3 pairs of tables will be availble. Each table is $30, so each pair of tables is $60 for the day.
