Excerpt from the SteamFest website:

STEAMFEST 2017SteamFest 2017

Lots of raves from visitors showed our 2016 SteamFest was a steaming success! Our 2017 SteamFest is going to be better again, that is because we always aim for more next time! We want to build on what we achieved in 2016 with many more stalls offering Tasmanian foods, crafts and fresh produce, and new exhibits, entertainers and children’s activities.

SteamFest brings history to life over three days with one of the biggest collections of working steam machinery in Australia, steam train rides, exhibitions of pioneering skills such as blacksmithing, historic machinery such as steam powered threshers and rock crushers showing how things were done in yesteryear, and vintage cars.

Kids vs Steamroller Tug-o-War, plenty of kid’s entertainment plus lots and lots of art, craft and food stalls. And of course, our Krauss steam loco running every half hour, all day long!
