• Port Milang Historic Railway Museum

    Located on the site of the closed Milang railway station, on the banks of Lake Alexandrina, the original station buildings have been restored.  The tracks are now home to South Australian wagons and coaches which contain photographic and actual exhibits, describing the history of Milang and its railway.

The Milang Railway Museum is now a great day out for both families and for railway enthusiasts.

In the South Australian Railways (SAR) collection we have a historic locomotive plus a number of coaches and wagons standing on the tracks alongside the original station buildings. These contain an exhibition of photos and memorabilia of the Port of Milang and its railway. Interactive displays include a talking station master, a railway lamps puzzle, a working model railway and many more. “Kids” from 5 to 105 can “drive” a real diesel locomotive.

A second collection tells the story of the various light railways which operated in South Australian mines, jetties, salt pans, munitions stores, etc. Three restored locomotives are included in the display.

The museum also operates a small cafe serving Devonshire Teas. There is also a community craft shop adjacent to the museum.

 

 

Saturday and Sunday afternoons from 12pm to 4pm or by appointment.
