Pichi Richi Railway Executive is pleased to announce (in accordance with government recommendations during the COVID-19 pandemic) that train services will recommence on 28 June 2020 with capacity restrictions to enhance social distancing.  We will be able to carry up to 20 passengers per carriage and 80 passengers per service.  Pre-packaged food will be available for purchase at Woolshed Flat on Pichi Richi Explorer services and seats will be allocated at the Ticket Office at the departure station.  Passengers will be sent an email on the day before departure detailing arrangements.

Please note the following special requirements:

  • Passengers must not travel if they are feeling unwell and should advise the Flinders Rangers Visitor Information Centre or the PRR Ticket Office on 08 86486598 before departure if this is the case.
  • Passengers are encouraged to bring their own hand sanitiser, although hand sanitiser will also be available on the train.
  • Passengers should report to the relevant Ticket Office at least 60 minutes before train departure for checking in and confirmation of carriage allocation and of contact-tracing details. Any children under 4yrs in your party should be advised at the time of booking.
  • Passengers are reminded to adhere to social distancing protocols when they are attending the Pichi Richi Railway.
  • Passengers must ensure they sit in the same seat on any return journey.
  • Passengers from outside South Australia should consider the potential impact of border restrictions when booking.
