These locos were originally built to move copper ore for the Mount Lyell Mining and Railway Company, delivering the mine's deep riches out of a massive, landlocked deposit at Queenstown to the port of Strahan, and from there, to the world. And every passenger is greeted by one of the line's original workhorses, a 28 tonne steam locomotive that's ready to roll – and guaranteed to raise a smile.

Pure water running off mountains is ideal for producing fine whisky. Just like in the 1830s, Tasmanian whisky is handcrafted slowly in copper stills, matured in small barrels and hand bottled by whisky lovers, for whisky lovers, worldwide.

Getting Around

With good roads, few freeways or motorways and scenic views wherever you go, getting around Tasmania is part of the fun. Although Tasmania is a small state by Australian standards, it's actually the same size as Ireland, so don't underestimate the time it takes to get around. There are no train services in Tasmania so travellers rely on bus and coach and of course car-hire to get to and from our cities and regional centres. Coach tours offer a relaxing way of seeing the state. Specialised small escorted group touring is also available to cater for particular interests and the youth touring market.
