A National Body for Australian Tourist & Heritage Railways

The Association of Tourist and Heritage Rail Australia (ATHRA) was incorporated in 2004 to represent and deliver real benefits to our members – the grass roots individual Tourist and Heritage rail operators.

 

ATHRA continues to serve the sector by providing a united front to government statutory bodies as well as contributing to regulatory reviews and legislation concerning rail and tram operations and safety.
