Kojonup Tourist Railway
The Kojonup Tourist Railway began in 1993 with several local residents realising what history and value would be lost should the railway line completely disappear in Kojonup. Through their hard work and perserverance and with the assistance of the Shire of Kojonup the Kojonup Tourist Railway Inc is an active volunteer organisation that is working towards the preservation of the 12 km of line.
