Step back in time at this great historical museum in Port Adelaide. This is Australia's largest display of steam engines and diesel locomotives and provides a fascinating look at the impact the railways have had on this huge country; for example a journey that took two weeks by horse and cart would take just two days by rail.
There are lots of interactive displays featuring the old signalling units and signage, and others that show the gradual development of the railways throughout the country. They even have the original train departures board from the Adelaide Railway Station.
Overall the National Railway Museum is a fantastic place to visit for the whole family and is open 5 days a week from 10am until 5pm.
