All aboard at Bennett Brook Railway as you take a scenic vintage train ride through Whiteman Park’s protected banksia woodlands.

Train ride - open carriage - waving families Train ride - Steam train at station

The Bennett Brook Railway operates steam and diesel trains over six kilometres of 610mm narrow gauge track, providing a unique railway experience through the bushland of Whiteman Park.

While helping the organisation to preserve Western Australian railway heritage, visitors may be lucky enough to spot some of the Park's resident Western grey kangaroos and other native species.

On weekends and public holidays, services are half hourly from the Village Junction Station and hourly from Mussel Pool.

During the week, you can enjoy a scenic trip around the bushland loop, departing from the Village Junction Station on the hour on their operating days.

For more information, visit their website at www.bbr.org.au
