Willans Hill Miniature Railway

The Wagga Wagga Society of Model Engineers has created a miniature world of rail, which delights thousands of visitors each year.

Established in 1978, The railway features two stations and a working controls feature along the extensive track of over two kilometres, which weaves its way through gardens, woodlands, a tunnel and across to the Museum of the Riverina and back again.

7 locomotives owned by the club, and a number of personally owned locomotives, run along the three routes currently in use. The Main line is a shorter route that runs within the boundaries of the botanical gardens itself, the Museum line takes the trains under Lord Baden Powell Drive over to the loop next to Museum of the Riverina car park and the Spiral line runs around a spiral and then returns via either the museum line or the main line.

Trains run on the first and third Sunday of every month, with tickets costing $4.00 each. Enclosed footwear must be worn when riding the trains.

An annual Invitational Run has been held every year since 1988 on the first weekend of November. Miniature trains from all over Australia converge here for two days of train running. Traditionally, the Saturday is for club members only and the Sunday event is open for public running.
