When:

Held in May because Blaxland, Lawson and Wentworth first crossed the area in May 1813 and in May 1868 the railway arrived in town.

The Great Train Weekend is a very enjoyable and affordable weekend held in a village where you step back in time to the last authentic 19th Century village in the Blue Mountains - Mount Victoria the crossroads of the Blue Mountains.
