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 is the second time we have done this tour and we recommend it. Tram ride has a brief stop off to take pics and stretch the legs. Driver very kindly allowed the kids to set off the train whistle... nice touch. Drivers joked were a tad 'lame', but at least he was bubbly and happy. Would recommend for all... More

The slow trip across the main road and up to the Falls where it stops for a 15 minute walk . The operator has a wealth of information concerning the forest and the old milling operations. Travelling slowly across a few bridges allows plenty of time for photos. We were lucky enough to see an emu running down the track.

Awesome experience right through the middle of Karri forest. Beautiful forest ride in open tram. Its informative and good experience overall. Either catch the tram at 10:45 AM or the next one at 2:00 PM. It will stop at the waterfall mid way for about 10 mins ....nice open area. Tram takes you into the forest crossing old wooden bridge...

Such a great way to spend half a day. The tram runs into the forest and there is an excellent commentary about the forest given by the driver. There is a good little gift shop at the start and all the staff were very helpful and friendly. This attraction is well worth diverting to find.

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
