Our 2023 SteamFest will feature the largest collection of Steam Rollers ever seen in Tasmania with rollers coming from all over the State. If we can get sponsorship or funding we will be able to bring more from the mainland as well.
Another very significant first is the running of Wee Georgie Wood outside of Tullah for the first time in its long and prestigious life. Wee Georgie – the little Fowler Steam Locomotive – served the Tullah Community for many years as its only mechanized access. More recently it operates on the first and last weekends of the month as a tourist attraction.
The committee looks forward to presenting these wonderful displays and special attractions.
We thank all those volunteers, exhibitors, stall holders and sponsors who have made the event possible over the last 28 years of running the event on the March Long Weekend and we are looking forward to a great Festival in 2023.
Background about SteamFest >>> On the March long weekend every year in Tasmania, SteamFest brings history to life over three days with one of the biggest collections of working steam machinery in Australia, Steam train rides, exhibitions of pioneering skills showing how things were done in yesteryear, ploughing displays and often a full wood chopping competition on Monday.
Plenty of kid’s entertainment plus lots and lots of art, craft and food stalls. And, of course, their Krauss steam loco running every half hour, all day long!
Held in the Town of Murals and Home of SteamFest – SHEFFIELD
