Trains! Kids LOVE trains and they will love being able to ride on the miniature railway while you’re visiting Kadina.

The miniature railway is scheduled to run twice a month, on their handmade track, on the grounds around the Copper Coast Visitor Information Centre at 50 Mines Rd Kadina.

The trains generally operate from 10am to 3pm (with last trains leaving from 2.30pm) on the 1st and 3rd Sunday of each month apart from twilight Saturday runs in January. At $3 per person per ride, it is suitable for all ages. (What a bargain!)

Covered footwear is required. Latest updates can be found at

The Miniature Railway is run by the Copper Coast Old Engineering and Machinery Club – thanks for providing this great attraction!

  • Trains! What else do kids want to see? My nephews are entranced by trains of ANY kind and whenever they visit Adelaide this is a place they adore. The National Railway Museum in Port Adelaide is an awesome place to check out Australian railway history through interactive educational activities, climbing into the cabs of trains, taking free train rides and comparing the old steam trains to the trains of today. There's even a really cool mini railway! Our Mr 3 LOVES it at the National Rail Museum and often asks to go - it's a great day out with his Dad and Grandad especially, who seem to enjoy the visits almost as much as the kids do! We can't get away with a visit, without going on the little steam train, but everyone seems happy with their ride and hearing the train whistle along the way is definitely a highlight! The National Railway Museum is well worth a look, and is very reasonably priced. It is suited to children of any age, but probably most enjoyable for ages 2-13. There's a lot to discover and learn at the museum and I highly recommend a visit in the school holidays when…

  • Ah the Copper Coast. Every South Australian worth their weight in pie floaters and frog cakes will have a story to tell about some sort of family adventure on our famous Yorke Peninsula. Whether it be getting stuck in a 20km traffic jam past Port Wakefield with every other person in the state, or being chased by an emu at Innes National Park (maybe thats just my story?), there are so many reasons why it always has been and will remain such a popular holiday destination for us all. Fun fact; the whole peninsula is a really bloody big place! Looking kind of like Italy and probably about the same size (not a fact), it doesn’t take long to drive around the whole peninsula but to properly relax, explore and take it all in, now that takes a bit of time. As a result for our trip we focussed on the northern part of Yorkes, the Copper Coast. Making up the towns around Wallaroo, Kadina, Moonta, Port Broughton etc, this beautiful part of the state has so much to offer for families. Given the price of petrol is higher than the moon, the fact all this is under 2hrs from…
