Thomas the Tank Engine is visiting his favourite Australian holiday home to hang out with his Aussie fans! This year Thomas and his friends are fascinated with the wonder and colour of the circus, so they're bringing some circus fun with them!

Get hands on with circus inspired activities, take happy snaps with The Fat Controller and friends of Thomas, build tracks and spot the little engine on the huge model rail layout.

Older kids can try driving a train with the diesel and tilt train simulators and check out the science stations. Even grown-ups will enjoy this visit with tours of the active Heritage Workshops on offer.
