Broken Hill Railway Centenary Tour – BOOKED OUT

The Railway Luncheon Club invites members and guests to experience Broken Hill and the outback as we celebrate the centenary of the railway from Menindee to Broken Hill. Opened on 15 July 1919, it operated as an isolated section until 7 November 1927 when the connection from Menindee through to Sydney via Parkes was completed. Travel to Broken Hill on Friday 12 July 2019 on the Trainlink XPT to Dubbo and connecting coach to Broken Hill arriving on that evening, or travel by your own means to Broken Hill to arrive by Friday evening 12 July 2019. For the next 3 days explore the railways and tramways that were synonymous with Broken Hill’s history. In our chartered coach we’ll be looking at Broken Hill as well as traveling to Silverton, Tarrawingee and Menindee and places in between to look at what remains of the railway systems there. The tour will conclude after breakfast on Tuesday 16 July 2019 enabling you to return home on the Trainlink Xplorer service from Broken Hill, or via your own means if you so choose. The tour will be lead by Broken Hill historian and ARHSnsw life member Gary Hughes.

The cost for this tour is $875 per person for double or twin share, with an additional $220 per person for a single supplement. This cost includes all transfers to and from the motel, all accommodation at the Comfort Inn Crystal Motel from the Friday night 12 July to the Monday night 15 July inclusive, all meals from breakfast on Sat 13 July until Tuesday 16 July, coach hire for 3 days, museum entry, as well as extensive notes. The tour cost does NOT include your travel to and from Broken Hill, drinks or items of a personal nature.

There will be a limit of 40 people on this tour so secure your booking now with a $300 deposit, the balance to be paid by 1 June 2019. It is recommended that if you are travelling on the Trainlink services then you should make these bookings early as the tour is in the middle of school holidays. If traveling by means other than Trainlink and you require transfer to the motel, please let us know so that this can be arranged.
