Thirlmere Festival of Steam 2023, Dates, Map, Times & Museum Address

The Thirlmere Festival of Steam is best loved for its popular 40-minute long steam train ride along the Thirlmere Heritage Railway. The train ride will take you from Thirlmere to Buxton, with tickets must be booked in advance, as they often sell out. You can get your tickets from the NSW Rail Museum.

When you get back from your journey on these beautiful and historic steam trains, take a wander through the NSW Rail Museum and learn a little about Australian locomotive history.

Cheer on the vibrant street parade featuring the NSW Police Band, entertainers, community groups, schools and businesses. The parade commences at 11am and passes through the centre of Thirlmere, along Oaks St.

Wander through the streets of beautiful Thirlmere Village and browse all the artisan wares on offer. Why not also sample some of the delicious food and drinks available at the same time.

Youngsters of all ages will find fun and entertainment with a range of amusement rides and display attractions to enjoy.

The Thirlmere Festival of Steam is a free community event, with the exception of the steam-train ride. If you want to browse through the NSW Rail Museum, a ticket will also be required for entry.

So bring along your friends and family to the beautiful township of Thirlmere for this annual festival!
