The half-day River and Rainforest excursion from Strahan to Dubbil Barril and return features views of Macquarie Harbour and then the King River, which is crossed via the historic Iron Bridge to reach the station at Lower Landing. Here, passengers learn of the bee hives that are carried on the railway to be placed on the Teepookana Plateau and produce the prized Leatherwood honey. Passengers can taste and if they wish purchase varieties of the honey. The journey proceeds to Dubbil Barril where they learn about the dairy farm that once occupied the river banks, enjoy the Rainforest Walks and observe the locomotive being manually turned.
The full day Queenstown Explorer return excursion departs from Strahan and lasts 8 hours, including all the station activities of the half day journeys plus a 90-minute stopover in Queenstown where passengers are offered lunch at Tracks Cafe and a walking tour of the town (optional but included in the fare).
The Rack and Gorge half-day excursion departs and returns to Queenstown Station.
