707 Operations announces our next steam - hauled sleeping carriage slow rail cruise train that will travel to Echuca, Deniliquin, Swan Hill and Piangil over the Queen's Birthday Long Weekend on Friday 11 June to Monday 14 June. You'll have time to explore two of the Murray River's most beautiful destinations. Once you step on board, you'll experience the magic of overnight rail travel in our restored sleeping and lounge carriages, including day trips to Deniliquin and Piangil. Book your tickets here.
Following an evening departure from Melbourne's Southern Cross Station at 9.50 pm, we will begin with a welcome aboard drink and nibbles in our lounge carriages as we head North travelling through Gisborne, Woodend and Kyenton towards Bendigo. Retire to your sleeping cabin for an evening of rest as we climb up the Great Dividing Range through Woodend, and north to the Murray region during the night.
With an early morning arrival into Echuca, we will wake for breakfast and then a day trip to Deniliquin departing at 9.30 am (included in the fare). Alternatively you can stay in Echuca for the 2020 Echuca Steam Rally or explore Echuca.
We arrive in to Deniliquin at 11.55 am, where you can explore Deniliquin and take a long lunch break before the 2.45 pm departure time for the return journey to Echuca, where the train will arrive at 5.00 pm.
Our dinner service tonight is on the water with a historic Murray River paddle steamer to cruise our way along the mighty Murray River and enjoy a buffet dinner along the way. Transfer back to the train for an after dark departure (10.00 pm) Saturday night, from Echuca to Bendigo, then from Bendigo to Swan Hill. We'll arrive into Swan Hill very early on Sunday morning while most passengers are fast asleep in comfortable private sleeping compartments.
In Swan Hill, you can join us for a shuttle train over the freight only track to Piangil and return or explore this Murray River township at your own leisure. Sunday afternoon join us on the PS Pyap for a Murray River cruise.
