Thirlmere Festival of Steam

As a result of the recent bush fires that impacted the Wollondilly community and the subsequent and ongoing response by local community groups, the Thirlmere Festival of Steam has been postponed to a date yet to be determined.

The Thirlmere Festival of Steam is a fun community event held at the NSW Rail Museum in Autumn each year.

Come along with your family and friends and explore this beautiful little town as you enjoy the festival atmosphere with market stalls, live music and train rides!

Thirlmere Festival of Steam 2020 – Dates, Map, Times & Museum Address

The Thirlmere Festival of Steam is best loved for its popular 50-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. Browse through the more than 150 market stalls which sell plenty of tasty food and handmade crafts, and then relax and enjoy some live musical entertainment in the park.

The street parade is also a popular event as part of the festival, and kids will love the petting zoo, roving performers and working dog demonstrations. Check out the wood chopping and sheep shearing demonstrations to learn more about the tough work employed in this country town. There will also be a vintage car show with some amazing vehicles on display.

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!
