Canberra Miniature Railway

The Canberra Miniature Railway runs train rides for the public. We're owned and maintained by the Canberra Society of Model and Experimental Engineers (CSMEE), a community non-profit society staffed entirely by volunteers. All profits go towards building, maintaining and extending the rolling stock, track and infrastructure.

  • Saturday 18 February 2023
    On Saturday 18th February the CMR is hosting train rides at dusk and in the dark. Rides begin at 5:30pm so that the littlies can enjoy them before they're off to bed but the real fun begins at dusk and in the dark when our incredible light show comes alive! Many of our trains have light shows themselves but the greatest attractions are the animated lights around the tracks. Trains travel beside, around and even under thousands of computer-controlled lights.

  • Between Saturday 8 April 2023 and Sunday 9 April 2023
    The Canberra Miniature Railway is holding its Easter extravaganza, one of our most popular events of the year, this time with two nights to double the capacity. Rides run between 5pm and 8pm so start in the daylight and end in the dark under lights, but the big hits are the two Easter egg hunts, at 5:30pm and 6:30pm each day, where there are 4000 Easter eggs to find! A great fun event not to be missed.
