Tasmania’s West Coast Wilderness Railway DVD


Take a trip back in time to where men slaved through mud, rain and treacherous landscapes to forge a link between the mining town of Queenstown and the port of Strahan along Tasmania’s rugged West Coast. This fascinating documentary is the incredible story of the railway’s resurrection following it’s closure in 1963.

The historic 35 kilometre railway of tight curves and spectacular bridges clambers through rugged wilderness, dense rainforest and steep gorges, and is a legacy of the skills, determination and endurance of the early west coast pioneers who built it against towering odds.

Enjoyed today by tourists from around the world, the story of the railway’s rebirth in 2002 is as amazing as it’s original construction, and embodies the original railway motto, ” We find a way to make it”.
