About our Accommodation


About our Accommodation


The Nambucca Valley Train Carriages have been built new, from the ground up in 2019.

The train carriage offers a unique B&B style experience in self contained private holiday accommodation.

We have replicated the carriage used on the Wisebech and Upwell Tramway, which was built by GER (Great Eastern Railways), Stratford England in 1888.

The carriage sleeps two people in a Queen Bed, with an ensuite bathroom, kitchen and balcony.

Your included continental breakfast of cereal, toast, jam, honey, juice, tea and coffee is ready for you to enjoy at the dining table or on the balcony.

You are welcome to bring food to cook on the electric cooktop & microwave in the kitchen or on the electric BBQ on the balcony, if you wish to stay in and cook something for yourself for dinner or breakfast.

The carriage is located 200 metres from the North Coast Railway line which can be seen from the balcony and windows.

Other than passing trains, the property is private and peaceful, you can see the wallabies grazing near the carriage most mornings.

We have bitumen road access to our 300 metre maintained gravel driveway and there is plenty of room to park a trailer or boat.

Your hosts, David and Diane, ensure your stay is comfortable and are always happy to offer advice on local attractions, restaurants, and activities to make your holiday in the Nambucca Valley one to remember.

  •   We had a wonderful stay at Dave’s magical train carriage in the middle of nature. 🚂 💫 🍃 Everything from the initial communication, the check-in, to the room itself, tidiness of the small but sufficient kitchen corner and beautiful bathroom couldn’t be better. A great and surprisingly fast Wi-Fi and several USB plugs to charge our phones wouldn’t have been needed, but came still handy on our roadtrip. The large bed with great blankets and heaps of good pillows had a mattress rather on the soft end, depending on what you prefer. Soft nights rest. 😴 We wish it hadn’t rained so much so we could’ve explored the surroundings of this wonderful place more. Thank you! ☺️ 🙏🏽

      Our 3rd stay now ! And really can’t believe how quiet and peaceful it is, we find it really hard to leave. 10/10 as usual !

      Thank you Dave for creating such a unique experience with the carriage accommodation. The attention to detail is outstanding.
    We were travelling back from Vic to Brisbane in an ex-army Unimog and arrived a little later than we expected. Nothing was too much to ask and Dave was very welcoming when we arrived.
    We stayed in the Red carriage and loved our stay. The little extras, the wonderfully comfortable bed, the rainhead shower rose with the extra large walk-in shower to the kitchen was everything one could wish for. Complete with the train line at the base of his property really added to the experience.

    We shall be back!

  •   Wow! Such a novel idea .. recreating an English train carriage for an AirBnB! Dave & his wife are wonderful hosts. From beginning to end a seamless transaction. Dave greeted us in person as we arrived & was super friendly, interesting & informative. Lovely home-made touches with freshly baked cookies on arrival etc. Spotlessly clean with beautiful new modern decor & the fun of 3 real trains passing by down below us to add to the "train" experience! Lovely continental brekkie in fridge on arrival with great selection of hot drinks. BBQ on train deck for those wanting to cook their own food. The whole feeling is of luxury, with very comfortable warm bed & reverse cycle air-con if needed but plenty of fresh air through windows. Good size TV with Netflix. We absolutely loved our stay .. thank you Dave & the Mrs .. highly recommend to anyone looking for something a bit different!

      We booked this unique stay for our parents as a wedding anniversary gift. Dave was so lovely to communicate with, and really looked after our parents. Thank you!

    thumb Hannah

      Amazing stay in one of the quietest locations I think we’ve ever stayed. The odd train came through down the paddock but didn’t worry us. That much so that we booked a second night. Dave and Dianne are amazingly friendly hosts who have thought of just about everything including home made biscuits, and a few lollies to enjoy. Comfy bed, lovely bathroom, great kitchen facilities and private BBQ and breakfast included. To top it all off the cutest laundry in a telephone box you’ve ever seen, with a wash and dry machine. Oh and I forgot to mention the gorgeous train carriage accomodation. Well done to you both. Just the quiet relaxing couple of days we needed to break up our trip before visiting our friends on the Gold Coast.

  •   Absolutely loved staying with Dave!
    As soon as my partner and I saw this on Air bnb we knew we had to stay and it definitely did not disappoint.
    The place was so clean and built with so much love!
    We would definitely return!

    thumb Mikayla

      This was a brilliant place to stay. Close enough to everything but once you are in, it is like you are the only one around. Dave had all the answers and was lovely. Can’t recommend them enough!

    thumb Emma

      What a great concept and Dave has pulled it off. These are small, but well laid out and comfortable. The bbq on the deck and the firepit nearby, all make this a wonderful place to stay.
