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.

This tram ride is worth the effort, our whole family enjoyed the relaxing ride through the forest. In the winter months, I'd imagine the rivers and waterflow would be pretty spectaular, because it was still beautiful in summer. Historical commentary from the tram driver makes for an interesting ride.

The Pemberton tram is probably one of two main attractions in Pemberton. It's a quaint little tram that travels 10km into the forest, where you'll learn about the history of Pemberton's saw mill, karri trees, brooks and of course, the railway itself. Set aside two hours to experience a really traditional ride, with tooting at road and bridge crossings. Do... More

I'll keep this short and sweet. The Pemberton Tramway is a must do if you are visiting the area. Aside from the fascinating history of the rail system; the tram tour is engaging and a good chance to see the Karri forest. Brian, our tour guide, was enthusiastic and knew a lot about the local bushland and history of the... More

a fantastic tram ride should be on everyones to do list when they visit Pemerton. This unforgettable, 1 3/4 hr service shuffles out of Pemberton, past the Saw Mill and descends into the Karri forest. The tram meanders through forest, crossing six bridges, stopping at the Cascades and at the Warren River Bridge, where the Lefroy Brook joins the Warren... More

Leisurely tram ride along the historic Pemberton timber getters railway, through Karri forests and crossing creeks on old rickety trestle bridges. Saw fish and wildlife enroute. Adam the driver was knowledgable and even his 'dad jokes' were bearable.......just!

We thoroughly enjoyed our tram trip along the old rail tracks from Pemberton to Warren River Bridge with a short stop at The Cascades to see the fly fishermen. The tram journey was a nice relaxing ride through the forest and the driver was extremely informative. Hard wood seats so you could take a cushion if you want to be... More

Enjoyed the morning tram trip. Very informative about logging and development of the rail line. Driver was entertaining though was speaking very quickly which made it hard for overseas visitors to follow all the jokes.

Took my sister and her husband who were over on holiday from Melbourne and they loved every minute of it. Lovely way to spend a couple of hours.
