Overview

All aboard at the Pemberton Railway Station for these return services which meander through towering Karri and Marri forests; over trestle bridges spanning rivers and streams along one of Australia's most majestic rail lines through to the Warren River Bridge. In spring (September and October) the forest is resplendent with colourful wildflowers. As you admire the breathtaking view on the journey your tram driver gives an informative commentary on the forest, railway line and history of the region; with a 15 minute stop at the Cascades for you to alight and experience the feel of the forest.

There was limited commentary by the captain and the ride was long and quite boring during winter. Not worth the price and can skip this attraction if possible.

My family of five went on the morning tram ride and it was honestly not very interesting after the initial novelty wore off. Commentary provided was sparse and not very informative. The tram stopped once at the Cascades for a short 15min photo taking. I...More

The Pemberton tramway departs twice a day at 10:45AM and 2:00PM Mondays to Saturdays, and we opted for the 2PM ride as it better fitted our itinerary for the day. The tram crosses five bridges, with the driver slowing or stopping by at each of...More

I was expecting to see the tall trees but this tramway rumbles through pretty ordinary scrubby vegetation, stops at a bubbling stream, goes over a few wooden bridges and then goes backwards the same way it came in. Driver seemed a bit bored with the...More

What a great ride through the forest with a most informative guide who kept us smiling with his witty comments. Do take the short walk down to the Cascades, great for photos. Highly recommended ride.

After a not so friendly start (lady serving is abrupt and couldn't spare a smile) we had a lovely tram ride. Adam was very funny, heaps of 1 liners and kept us entertained. Also very informative and such lovely views. Perhaps the tourist centre or...More

A fun way to travel through the forest. Trip takes 1.5hrs. Commentary was informative and amusing. Little bit bumpy and if elderly I would suggest taking a cushion to sit on.

We found the tram to be a great way to see some of the forest and certainly to learn of the logging history. The driver was extremely knowledgeable and provided lots of information along the way. The tram takes you 10kms along the track over...More
