About us


Winelands Light Railway first opened on the 14 December 2019 and is located on the R304, Koelenhof, Stellenbosch. One train ride lasts approximately 7 minutes and takes you on a 760m journey within our train park.

This picturesque journey can be enjoyed by the little ones and be appreciated by the older folk. Our park is specifically designed to create fun memories for parents and children by sharing an exclusive outdoor experience.

Jump onboard one of our trains at Park Station and experience a locally designed and built miniature railway. Steam trains will haul passengers between 11.00 – 15.00 on a Saturday and Sunday. Our two electric engines, Dozer and Fritz, will provide our guests with the same unlimited amount of fun when the steam trains are off duty.

Food and drinks


Visitors are welcome to bring in their own picnic baskets and spend the day with us. We have beautiful, shaded lawns where families can unwind. Please do not forget to pack your picnic blankets and extra sunscreen!
