Description & Where: Operating since 1995, the Cockatoo Run is a scenic journey along the Illawarra Line, passing first through the rugged natural beauty of the Royal National Park before a spectacular shift to coastal scenery as the line runs parallel to the south coast from Stanwell Tops through to Wollongong and Unanderra. The vintage diesel locomotive tackles the steep grades up the Illawarra Escarpment, where we can enjoy the transition from splendid coastal views to waterfalls and magnificent rainforest as the train climbs up to Summit Tank, where the train pauses for passengers to admire the breathtaking views over Lake Illawarra to the Tasman Sea from the lookout.
The train then continues through to historic Robertson, where we disembark to explore the town’s rustic charms and enjoy a leisurely lunch before the return trip. There is a buffet service on the train. NO BYO permitted.
