Operating between Quorn and Port Augusta, the narrow gauge Railway was built in the 1870's, and is the last remaining operating portion of the famous Ghan railway. Trains use steam locomotives or historic diesels and genuine timber-body carriages up to 115 years old.
A variety of hire options are available to meet your special requirements, with trips ranging from two to six hours.
Departing from Port Augusta visitors first traverse a wide-open plain, watching as the Ranges grow closer, eventually enveloping the line. Travel past redgum-lined creekbeds, saltbush-studded hills and rocky outcrops before arriving at Quorn, the historic capital of the Southern Flinders Ranges.
A shorter trip from Quorn to Woolshed Flat (return) travels through the timeless Pichi Richi Pass, with its deep rock cuttings, superb stone wall embankments and spectacular iron bridges.
The Pichi Richi Railway Preservation Society is a volunteer group, which has progressively restored and operated the railway as a working museum based at Quorn. The society has preserved a large collection of historical locomotives and goods and passenger vehicles, restoring many to working order.
