The Ceres Railway track was originally built at the turn of the 19th century, starting in July 1910 and completing in May 1912, then refurbished and reopened in 2012 with a variety of beautiful locomotives commissioned to ply the line.
This is such a unique and relaxing way to explore the area and soak up some of the 100-year-old history, and best of all, you don’t need a designated driver.
Ceres is one of the most fertile and productive areas for deciduous fruits, and you will find amazing produce and preserves sold at local farmstalls.
Bear in mind, the locomotives pulling the luxury bar and lounge/dining carts are stunning steam engines (one beautiful engine is named “The Red Devil”), lovingly restored or rebuilt.
You will be riding within a piece of history while enjoying the timeless beauty of the Ceres mountains.
