Event Information

We invite you to join us on the Cockatoo Run, hauled by heritage diesel locomotives and featuring our beautifully restored and maintained carriages. This heritage train operates a return tour from Sydney through to Robertson and Moss Vale* via Wollongong. 

The Cockatoo Run commences its journey in Sydney and travels along the spectacular Illawarra route to Wollongong. The journey from Sydney offers spectacular coastal scenery prior to the ascent of the Illawarra Escarpment.

The line climbs 600 metres through rainforests, past waterfalls, and the spectacular viaduct on the line. The train makes a stop at Summit Tank* to admire the view over Lake Illawarra out to the Tasman Sea.  The historic Southern Highland township of Robertson with its old town atmosphere and the rustic appeal is generally a great tourist stopover in which to spend some time and enjoy lunch (see below for details).

You have the choice of detraining here or alternatively continuing onto Moss Vale* before we return to Central, again via the Illawarra.

* Subject to timetable constraints
