We love hosting groups on the Solar Train. We host tour groups, corporate groups, wedding parties, garden clubs, Probus Clubs, Rotary Clubs, choirs, family groups, school groups and more.

Our staff are able to provide a talk about the Solar Train to your group, either on your coach, the platform or our train.

We can do a special return run within our normal operating hours at no additional cost, depending upon the numbers of your group. We can also allocate your group a whole carriage or compartment. Pricing can be provided for “out of hours” private bookings.

To help you make the most of the experience we have partnered with The Sun Bistro*, located across the road from the North Beach Station, to offer four different Ride in Style packages:

There is no need to book your Ride in Style packages unless you are a group of ten or more people. If you are under ten people just rock up, pay on the train and the staff will look after you. If you are a group of ten or more people please provide a weeks’ notice by completing the form here.

Alternatively you can contact Tara on 0439 277 611 or

* The Sun Bistro, or The Sun as it is known to locals, is set in bushland with a stunning outlook from the timber deck. Meals are both inspired and priced to please. The Sun boasts a large variety of craft beers as well as old favourites. The wine list includes a selection of natural and minimal intervention wines. The Sun is child friendly with a large grassy area for kids to play plus an enclosed toddlers play park.

“The Byron Solar Train is an attraction well worth visiting. We regularly send sold-out tours to visit the area and experience the train ride, informational talk, sightseeing and food. Our passengers, many of whom are repeat customers, thoroughly enjoy their visit to Byron Bay and particularly the Solar Train.” Brad Suosaari, All Australian Journeys, Cross Country Tours

“The Gold Coast and Tweed Valley senior groups have enjoyed the trips to the Byron Solar Train. It’s always really popular and they are wanting to do regular trips back. It’s a very educational tour.” Lynne Sullivan, Terry’s Tours

“The Byron Solar Train experience has been a popular addition to our Day Tour program. Robert and the Solar Train crew are great to deal with and go over and above to work with us in ensuring our groups have a great day out. The groups enjoy not only the the trip on the Solar Train but also the information that is given throughout the tour. Lunch at The Sun Bistro is well priced and well received.” Jenny Isaacs, Tweed Coast Luxury Tours

“How happy were our residents to attend the Byron solar train. They said it bought back lots of memories which flowed onto conversations. Residents have requested they go again soon to both the train and Sun Bistro, which I will organise”. Janelle Fantini, RSL Lifecare Ballina
