One of the coolest things about the tour organised by the Sydney Electric Train Society was the visit to the Sydney Tramway Museum in the suburb of Loftus in the Sutherland Shire. The museum houses a range of local and international trams that coasted along the historic lanes of Australian and overseas cities. Besides these, a historic double-decked bus is also seen in the museum, along with notable artifacts of priceless and historical value.
The visit to the museum also includes a ride to some of their priced tram collections. The ride goes all the way to the Army Reserve Barracks in Sutherland, and the Royal National Park in opposite directions. This chance of getting into one of these trams provides how classic and relevant they were during their heydays. They bring people to every nook and cranny of every bustling metropolis in the past era, and inspire the builders of locomotives of our modern times.
Complementing the visit is a sumptuous Aussie barbecue that makes the whole experience authentic and great. This is typical Australian culture that loves a superb meal and an amazing experience around people who share laughter and a great conversation.
How to Get There:
- Take a train on the Illawarra Line and get off at Loftus Station. Then take a five-minute walk from the station to the museum.
- When travelling by car it is recommended that one takes the Rawson Avenue, going south from Sutherland.
