Hotham Valley Forest Train

Explore The Forest Line

The historic Dwellingup Forest Train will take you 8 Kilometres eastward from Dwellingup to Etmilyn, along the state's last surviving lightly built developmental railway. Different from the Steam Ranger, the Forest Train is operated by V Class Diesel Locomotives built in the late 1940's. Just like 'Thomas The Tank Engine' there is a train for every purpose in Dwellingup. Why not ride them all?

"Lovely ride through the forest. When the train stops to turn the Loco around, you get a chance to take a short forest walk. "
