A 5min walk from North Wollongong Railway Station, beach, restaurants, clubs and hotels, Beaton Park Leisure Centre & sporting facilities.
The Cockatoo Run offers the scenic delights of the South Coast and Southern Highlands in one package. Your train whistles out of Sydney at 9.00am taking you across the expanse of the Georges River and through the Royal National Park (the first declared National Park in the world). Emerging from the gloom of the Otford Tunnel your train crosses the impressive Stanwell Park Viaduct and skirts the sea cliffs and beaches to Wollongong.
After leaving Wollongong on the second Sunday of the month, the train starts its steep ascent of the Illawarra Escarpment through coastal rainforest to Summit Tank - a climb of 600 metres in only 16 kilometres. At Summit Tank there is a pause where you will be rewarded with panoramic views over Lake Illawarra and the South Coast to Kiama.
