Pichi Richi Railway


Experience the timeless Flinders Ranges in style aboard the Pichi Richi Railway.

This historic railway line has been progressively restored and operated as a working museum for the past 47 years by the dedicated volunteers of the Pichi Richi Railway Preservation Society.

Offering full or half-day trips between Quorn and Port Augusta, this is the last remaining operating portion of the “Old Ghan” railway line.

The Afghan Express: A steam-hauled train using timber-bodied carriages built in the late 1920s. Port Augusta to Quorn (return), six hours including a two hour stop for lunch in historic Quorn.

The Pichi Richi Explorer: A steam train using South Australian railways carriages, some dating from the nineteenth century. Quorn to Woolshed Flat, return two hours.

The Coffee Pot: This unique steam motor coach is the last operating example of its type worldwide. Including a welcome drink, canapes and a 3 course lunch this is an exclusive experience for only 22 passengers.

Twilight Explorer: During March and November, relax aboard the Barwell Bull and watch the evening sun paint the ranges the colours of sunset.
