Trusted Travel are taking you away for a weekend full of steam engines, classic cars and fun times with a great group of like-minded people at the Hunter Valley Steamfest!
Australia has a rich history of engineering, machinery and all things steam and Steamfest is a celebration of this. Steamfest was established in 1986 following the closure of the last coal operated steam hauled freight service in Australia on the South Maitland Railway Line in 1983, Steamfest pays homage to the end of an industrial era and the men and women involved in its operation.
We will be driving up to Maitland and taking in the sights on the way, stopping for some lunch and to stretch our legs. We will have a get to know you dinner on the first night together in our house in the Hunter Region. We have two days to explore Steamfest and all it has to offer, plenty of steam trains and engines, a classic car show, food stalls, live entertainment and heaps of other activities, the highlight of the Festival is the Steam train race. We will be a part of that!!
We will also be taking the time to take in some more of Australia’s heritage with a visit to Maitland Gaol, which has a fascinating story and remains in its architectural glory – just like it was when it was operating as a gaol to some hardened criminals.
All Aboard for a weekend full of steam, history and adventure.
