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.

    Open from 10am til 2:30pm, we have two different tracks and many different trains. The canteen will be open for yummy hot & cold food & drink (and proper coffee!). Buy your lunch here and enjoy it in our covered picnic area while watching the trains go around. Children aged TWO and under are free - collect these tickets at the gate upon presentation of the child. Children aged FOUR and under must ride with a responsible older person.

    Over three nights the Canberra Miniature Railway is holding its Christmas On the Rails extravaganza, our biggest and most spectacular event of the year. Rides begin at 5:30pm so that the younger kiddies can enjoy them and still get home to bed in time but the real fun begins at dusk when Canberra's largest computer-controlled animated light show comes alive. You can ride the trains to Santa's grotto, visit him, then ride the trains back again! It's a Christmas experience not to be missed.
