Tiny house in a train! Both our red & green carriages are modelled from the balcony ended tram car built by Great Eastern Railways, England in 1884. The tram car was built for the Wisebec to Upwell line. This listing is for our red carriage.

The Nambucca Valley Train Carriages have been built new, from the ground up in 2019.We have replicated the carriage used on the Wisebech and Upwell Tram way, which was built by GER (Great Eastern Railways), Stratford England in 1888.The carriage sleeps two people in a Queen Bed, with an ensuite bathroom, kitchen and balcony.

You are welcome to bring food to cook on the electric cooktop microwave in the kitchen or on the electric BBQ on the balcony, if you wish to stay in and cook something for yourself for dinner or breakfast.

You will enjoy the privacy of your own carriage overlooking the bush. We have a fire pit & firewood for all guests, the pool next to our house is available to all guests. The phone box / laundry is available to all guests. The driveway access is very easy for you to come & go as you please.

We had a wonderful one-night stay in Dave and Diane's carriage. Dave was really caring and helpful and the carriage is very comfortable. Would go back without a doubt.

We really enjoyed our time at Nambucca Valley Train Carriages Red Carriage. The facilities were thoughtfully designed and immaculately clean. The train timetable for the sleepy north coast line was also a nice touch

Loved our stay! Surrounded by lush bush, super cute & modern carriage accomodation. The outlook is lovely and waving to a train down by the line and receiving a toot back was pretty fun! Would love to come back and stay more than one night. Thank you Dave & Diane. You were super friendly and accommodating. Will defiantly be recommending your stay!
