Want to spend a night on a train without forking out a few thousand on The Ghan? Steam in Forrest is your next best bet.

The restored train carriage took 9 months to renovate and started taking bookings on Airbnb back in 2015.

When we started renovating, the carriage did not have enough intact to restore it, so we have developed our own style that is vaguely steam-punk influenced.

It took nine months to renovate the train from a pretty ragged start. Almost every surface had to have something done to it, and we found that carriages were really tightly put together (all that rattling) and hard to pull apart. When we did get panels off, we had no idea what we would find.

We completely stripped and rewired the electrical, and did plumbing from scratch. Renovating anything over 100 years will have its challenges, but this was exceptional. It was opened for guests in July 2015. It is still a work in progress, there is a lot more to do before it reaches our vision, but we have been astounded by it’s popularity.


Steam features:

  • Three Bedrooms
  • Four Beds
  • One Bathroom
  • Kitchen
  • Indoor Fireplace
