Light & Sound Show

Ride the rails at night…

The ONLY Light and Sound Show in the Adelaide Hills.

The Platform 1 Light and Sound Show depicts early German settlement in the Adelaide Hills and describes how they forged their farming and family life in this new land.

Visitors are transported by train as the farm comes back to life to tell remarkable stories of yesteryear.

Listen as the machines stir themselves from their slumber and hear the farming noises of the past.

Be there as a bushfire rages through the creek, and seek shelter from the lightning storm!

Sit in the original Barn and learn the trials and triumphs of these courageous pioneers.

Using special effects, lighting and sound, this journey is one that creates an entertaining and exciting atmosphere for all.

The Platform 1 Light & Sound Show is held every Friday and Saturday night after dusk from November to March and also includes a country style supper of scones, muffins, cheese and crackers, tea/coffee & juice served in a 1955 railway dining carriage.
