Thirlmere Festival of Steam

The Thirlmere Festival of Steam is an annual 2 day event for the Shire held on the 1st weekend of March annually. In partnership with NSW Rail Museum and BD Productions this event showcases Rail Heritage , the township of Thirlmere & the wider shire of Wollondilly.

Attracting upwards of 16,000 visitors annually it is deemed as the longest running and one of the largest events of the Wollondilly Shire.

It provides a platform for approx 20 community groups and charities to fundraise, supports the Thirlmere Primary School, 7 local RFS groups, the Thirlmere Football club and of course The Rotary Club of Picton itself.

The club has been running the Festival since 2014 and it is currently the major fundraiser.

Our sponsors are: Wollondilly Shire Council, Tahmoor Underground Glencore, ABAX Contracting, Wollondilly Anglican College, Governors Hill PL, Bradcorp Holdings, Mowbray Park Farm Holidays, Picton Bowling Club and Multiquip. Without the support of theses companies we would not be able to run this event. Picton Rotary and the wider community of Wollondilly say thank you.

All profits from the festival are distributed by the Picton Rotary Thirlmere Festival of Steam Grants
