We rode the West Coast Wilderness Railway train journey along the king River and through the rain forest to Queenstown.
A journey on a restored railroad and trains that began their lives servicing the copper mines at Queenstown.
Andrew the guard does a grand job.
He keeps us amused with his commentary during the journey.
We went for a walk in the rainforest. The mosses and ferns made us feel as if we were on a walking track on the west coast of New Zealand.
We loved his big wave and extra Toot, toot... when we rode through Queenstown the next morning.
Nowadays the copper ore is exported to India to be refined.
We returned to Strahan by bus and had a lovely evening with my sister Yvonne and Ken who just happened to be in Strahan for the evening.
