Two popular South Coast museums will add fun and flavour as they welcome passengers from the Kiama Picnic Train when it makes a special stop at Albion Park station (adjacent to Shellharbour Airport) on Sunday 14 March 2021. A free bus will be waiting at the station so, instead of going to Kiama, passengers can experience both the Illawarra Light Rail Museum and HARS Aviation Museum before they rejoin the train for their return. The free bus, thanks to Warrigal Charters, will transfer passengers between the museums and also to/from Albion Park Railway Station. Illawarra Light Rail Museum visitors can ride rails into railway yesteryear in travel around a bushland setting in historic passenger carriages as well as riding on a miniature train. There’s also shed tours, a kid’s playground and food sales. HARS Aviation Museum Tour Guides are on hand to show visitors around almost 50 aircraft of significance to Australian history. Many are special-such as the iconic ‘Connie’ which is now the world’s only flying Super Constellation from the 1950s while tours also include the only Boeing 747-400 Jumbo Jet remaining in Australia. Visit Cafe Connie for drinks and delicious meals. PLEASE NOTE: Fares on the Picnic Train must be pre-booked on their website. Normal entry fees apply to the Illawarra Light Rail Museum and HARS Aviation Museum and are paid on entry.
