The Sydney Tramway Museum

The Sydney Tramway Museum began life in 1950, with the preservation of Lp class tram 154 by four young tram enthusiasts Norm Chinn, Robert Young, Ken McCarthy and Ben Parle. From 1957, the Museum was able to establish a site on the edge of the Royal National Park, next to what is now today the "Parklink" tramline. This location had had its share of history already; during the latter years of World War II, this had been an Army camp site, and from December 1946 to January 1947, it was the site of the first post-war Boy Scouts' Corroboree organised at a state level. From 1965, the museum operated trams to the public from this site, based out of a large corrugated iron shed constructed by the volunteers of the museum. In 1988, the Museum moved to its current premises next to Loftus railway station and has continued to grow its collection and facilities ever since.

To this day, the Museum remains a non-profit community organisation run entirely by volunteers.


The Audley Dance Hall Cafe, 2 Lady Carrington Drive, Royal National Park,

overlooks the Royal National Park, is open 7 days
The cafe provides the perfect spot to enjoy delicious coffee, share a meal, or just enjoy the peace and serenity. The cafe offers a wide variety of food items for all tastes and needs, whether eating in or taking away, breakfast or lunch, sweets or pastries, or delicious beverages and coffee. The cafe is fully licensed if you would like to enjoy a beer or a glass of wine overlooking the park.

There is extensive outdoor seating, under the veranda with heating and inside the cafe to be comfortable all year round. The large grassed area in front of the cafe leads down to the river and provides an ideal area for kids to run whilst you enjoy a meal and coffee. Our in house pastry chef bakes cakes, biscuits, slices and an assortment of treats daily for a fresh selection.
