The Party Coach

Make your kid's special day by hiring out the beautiful party coach and you'll have a day to remember. Moreover, parents can breath easy as this venue makes party planning fuss free, and your every need is taken care of.

What do you get?

This party venue is absolutely amazing value. For just $200 you get your own vintage rail coach parked up on Platform 3 within a safely enclosed fenced area; just perfect for little ones. The coach seats 24 children and has a sound system and wide serving area. Recently restored to its former glory by Bennett Brook Railway's hardworking volunteers, the carriage itself is beautiful inside and out and a perfect setting for a train themed party.

Outside of the coach, the platform area is also yours for the taking, and we opted to use this as our seating area, and took advantage of all the tables and chairs available for our sole use too.

The fenced in area of the platform

Platform 3 comes equipped with two rooms - one is a kitchenette of sorts, including a pie warmer, microwave, large 4 burner BBQ, kettle, fridge, large filled water filter, and supplies for tea and coffe (BYO milk). With this type of set up you could easily cater onsite with a sausage sizzle or heat up party pies for your guests. The other room is a storage room, where you'll find tables, kids' chairs, tressle tables etc. The platform itself also features a number of benches; everything has been thought of. There is a ramp that connects the carriage to the platform so prams and wheelchairs can access easily.

The party package includes unlimited rides on the service train (adjacent platform) for all of your guests which means your venue is taken care of and also your entertainment. Guests can ride the trains to their heart's content. This is such a hassle free venue, and parents will find party planning a piece of cake - all that's left to do is send out the invites, blow up some balloons, and grab your favourite party foods.

Bennett Brook Railway is located within the beautiful Whiteman Park, 16kms from Perth CBD and on the outskirts of the Swan Valley. This railway is a non profit association, wholly run by wonderful volunteers who are so friendly and helpful and who do their utmost to ensure you have a great party. I cannot recommend this venue enough.
