Our Rail Stations: Maydena and National Park

The Railtrack Rider is the only tourism product of its type currently operating in Australia. This unique selling point is further enhanced by the setting in which the product operates.

Railtrack Riders provides visitors with exclusive access into a tract of the southern Tasmanian rainforest via an historic rail line,that provides access to industrial relics of this time, now all but reclaimed by the forest. Being pedal-powered, the Railtrack Riders allows visitors to travel at their own pace and fully experience the sights, sounds and smells of the rainforest.
