Overview

All aboard at the Pemberton Railway Station for these return services which meander through towering Karri and Marri forests; over trestle bridges spanning rivers and streams along one of Australia's most majestic rail lines through to the Warren River Bridge. In spring (September and October) the forest is resplendent with colourful wildflowers. As you admire the breathtaking view on the journey your tram driver gives an informative commentary on the forest, railway line and history of the region; with a 15 minute stop at the Cascades for you to alight and experience the feel of the forest.

Nice ride, we enjoyed a lot. Guide was explaining things which made things more familiar. 15 minutes break can be increased to 1 hour as we can spend more time in water. But loved the ride.

Once you get past the unfriendly ticker seller, this tram ride is worth the (rather costly) fare..... The driver gave a reasonable commentary..... Be sure to dress warmly if it is a chilly day....

Definitely. My 8 year old loved it and there were lots of little kids on the tram.
