Home to Australia's largest rail heritage collection, strawberry picking and locally brewed apple cider

Drawing back on English roots, this gorgeous little town was named after an idyllic spot in the Lakes District of England. Thirlmere is located 95 kms southwest of Sydney, just over an hour drive from the CBD.

Nestled in bushland and with a historic background in rail, Thirlmere is home to Australia’s largest rail heritage collection housed at the NSW Rail Museum. Every year thousands travel to celebrate with locals in the traditional start of steam season with the Thirlmere Festival of Steam in March.

Thirlmere is also home to some amazing produce from farm gates such as Cedar Creek Orchard and Berrylicious Strawberries, with popular fruit picking experiences and farm tours for the whole family to enjoy. Be sure to pick up Cedar Creeks delicious apple cider, pack a picnic and head to Thirlmere Lakes National Park to enjoy free BBQ facilities and leisurely bushwalking routes.


Population (as at Census 2018): 4,834
