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 loved staying in the red carriage. It is beautifully designed and so cosy. A walk down to the train line is a must while you're there. Dave is a fantastic host.

    thumb Ria

      A lovely private location. The train carriage styled studio was very comfortable and had everything we needed. Loved the nod to history.

      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! ☺️ 🙏🏽

      Hi, We were travelling to Queensland from the South Coast of NSW when I had A Stroke while driving ndear Maitland. I went to hospital for 5 days and we had to cancel our accomodation with Dave and he was fantastic about it. Gave us a refund quickly and we will stay with Dave again when I feel better. Book with Dave with confidence, you will not regret it.
