General Information

Byron Solar Train

Bring your kids on the Byron Solar Train. They can walk up and down the carriages, talk to the driver and learn how the solar powered train works.

Settle yourself in first or coach class, open the windows and step back in time as you pass through forest and over Belongil Creek.

It’s a ten minute journey between North Beach Station and Byron Beach Platform. You can explore either end or just go straight in and back again from North Beach, where parking is free.

Tickets can be purchased on the train for  just $4 one way for adults, $2 kids 6 – 13 years, 5 years and under travel free.  Click here to view the latest timetable.

At $28 for adults the Ride in Style offer includes a return train trip, lunch at The Sun Bistro (across the road from North Beach Station) plus a glass of wine or Stone & Wood beer. Children’s meals are $8. You can purchase tickets either on the train or at The Sun Bistro.

Courtesy of a 4.6 billion year old power source the solar train service generates more power than it uses, with 73% of the energy generated going into the grid to power local homes.

There is an accessible toilet at the North Beach Station and plenty of room on board for prams, luggage, bicycles and surfboards.

Services in addition to the standard timetable are available upon request.
