The Railway Adventures Story

Railway Adventures, founded in 2012 by well-known Australian TV personality and self-confessed rail fan, Scott McGregor, has thrilled and delighted almost 1500 travellers on over 120 tours from Norway to Normanton, Transylvania to Tasmania and the Sri Lankan jungles to the South Australian Outback. Scott’s belief is that the most relaxing, romantic and engaging way to see a country is from the window of a train.

The Railway Adventures story actually began back in 1980, when Scott began building his rail-themed personal retreat, Ruwenzori, a set of life-sized train carriages sitting on the top of the Great Dividing Range near Mudgee. Restored in the Orient Express style, this very special getaway is now open on an exclusive, single-hire basis.

Scott’s successful acting and TV presenting career took an ‘on the rails’ turn with his numerous, much loved, rail-themed TV documentaries, and these, together with a long-standing involvement in rail heritage and his extensive connections with private train owners around the world, inspired the creation of a specialist travel company,  sharing bespoke rail adventures around the world with fellow travellers.
