West Coast Wilderness Railway (lowres)

West Coast Wilderness Railway

Travel from the heart of Queenstown deep into the West Coast mountains to the beginning of the iconic ABT Rack and Pinion section of track. The first of its kind in Australia, the system enables the locomotive to traverse the steep slopes. The Rack and Pinion is a must see for all who travel to Queenstown.

The Wall

Sculptor Greg Duncan is carving the history of Tasmanian Highlands in the form of a sculpted wall.
The idea may be simple, but the scale is breath-taking: Greg is aiming to carve 300 square metres of wood to form The Wall, a task he estimates will take ten years to complete.
Visit fhe Wall and see history in the making.
