World First Solar Train

Journey along the scenic 3km coastal track between the Byron town centre and burgeoning North Beach precinct on this immaculately restored 1949 era two carriage train.

This is net carbon positive travel, Byron style. The service generates enough power over and above what is needed to run the operation to power thirteen average three person homes for a year. All thanks to a 4.6 billion year old power source.

Relax on vintage lounge seats in the first class carriage or chat to fellow passengers in coach class as you travel past littoral rainforest, endangered coastal wetlands and over the stunning tea tree Belongil Creek, part of the Cape Byron Marine Park. Original interiors come complete with fresh air from open windows, bringing delight to old and young on the ten minute one way experience. Or enjoy a return 25 minute experience departing from North Beach Station.

The Byron Solar Train has capacity for 92 seated passengers, additional standing passengers and luggage room for bikes, prams and surfboards, carried free of charge. The service operates every day of the year except Christmas Day.
