East Coast Heritage Rail is proud to support the Wings Over Illawarra Airshow! Travel in style, avoid the traffic and make your day even more enjoyable and memorable – let us do the driving!
Enjoy the best of both worlds – combine heritage aviation with heritage rail by travelling with East Coast Heritage Rail to the show on one of the Airshow Flyer services. With an incredible flying program in development*, Wings Over Illawarra is set to impress! With limited parking available at the venue, taking the train is the best way to avoid the stress of driving.
The Airshow Flyer trains will feature our beautifully restored and maintained carriages hauled by heritage diesel locomotives, with return trips operating on both days of the airshow. Arrivals are timed** at around 10am so you can join the magnificent air displays from 11am, and a 5pm departure time lets you take in the whole day of displays and travel home easily.
Seats can be purchased for either a Saturday return or Sunday return train (or both!), boarding at Central, Hurstville, Sutherland or Thirroul for a direct train to Albion Park Station. The airshow entrance is just a short walk (100 metres) from the station via a dedicated access way.
A light buffet service will be available on the train.
PLEASE NOTE: You must purchase your airshow ticket separately at www.wingsoverillawarra.com.au
