SteamFest 2018
Date Sat 10th Mar 2018 to Mon 12th Mar 2018
Lots of raves from visitors showed our 2017 SteamFest was a steaming success! Our 2018 SteamFest is going to be better again, that is because we always aim for more next time! Every year we want to build on what we've achieved already and this means more stalls offering Tasmanian foods, crafts and fresh produce, and new exhibits, entertainers and children's activities. In 2017 we opened our new Miniature Railway - another attraction for the littlies and the not so young!
SteamFest brings history to life over three days with one of the biggest collections of working steam machinery in Australia, steam train rides, exhibitions of pioneering skills such as blacksmithing, historic machinery such as steam powered threshers and rock crushers showing how things were done in yesteryear, and vintage cars.
Kids vs Steamroller Tug-o-War, plenty of kid's entertainment plus lots and lots of art, craft and food stalls. And of course, our Krauss steam loco running every half hour, all day long!
