Illawarra Light Railway Museum

Posted by on May 16, 2013

On Mothers Day I had a few requests from our Boys. I did not want to be given stuff that I did not need! It was more about wanting an experience.

My number one request was to have peace n quiet,

My number two request was to go somewhere we have not been to before!

My number three request was to spend time with all of my boys.

We started the morning off slow, with Breakfast being cooked so that I could eat in bed, and it was so peaceful. Then about lunch time we headed over to Illawarra Light Railway Museum because I knew that the steam trains were going to be running. And our boys were keen to experience Mini Trains.

Our older two boys have been to Mackay Mini Trains when they were little (years ago) so it was good to be able to share this day with our younger three boys. Even though Nicholas was “too old” to ride the Mini Trains (according to him) I was happy to jump on!

The Bigger Steam Train ::

We even rode the bigger train – Jumping aboard twice to sit in different carriages.

Because it was Mothers Day they had a special Mothers Day pass – which we we worked out was good value.

Its free to enter the Light Railway Museum, where they have picnic tables and playground equipment. It only cost to ride the Steam Train and the Miniature  Trains. We are going to go back because we ran out of time for the Museum and our boys would love to be able to spend more time running around.

All in all it was a great Mothers Day out!

And my requests? Yes I got peace n quiet on Sunday Morning with Breakfast in Bed, we went to somewhere we have not been to before, and we drove into Sydney that night for dinner with my older son.  I was so very grateful to have a day with my family and new adventures. Its what “New Life on the Road” is all about.

    Townsville had one of these but I think it was damaged in the last cyclone. The kids loved going on it when they were small. Having a Mothers Day pass was a good idea for you. Glad you got all you wanted for the day :)
