Our relatives will be talking about our 50th wedding anniversary celebration for months or even years because of the unique & special venue of Red Rattlers. Every little detail is geared to ensure guests are comfortable and happy. Vicki went out of her way to accommodate our requests, and we highly recommend this amazing venue.
Such a unique stay! Step back in time sleeping and dining in these two wonderfully restored carriages. Great for families - Vicki was always prompt with responding to my questions and met us at check in to show us around. There was rainy weather the first day and Vicki put out extra towels and floor mats along with umbrellas, just in case. Despite the weather on some days, there was plenty to keep everyone entertained from the board games to the Netflix! On the sunny days we had lots of space at the back to play soccer and throw the frisbee. A lovely gesture having the waffle ingredients provided along with coffee pods. A charming place to stay that also has modern creature comforts. Thank you Vicki for your thoughtful touches!

We have just had the best long weekend away staying at the red rattlers, we went with our family of four and another couple and even the beloved dog came also! We couldn’t be happier with the location and accomodation, so much to look at, very quirky and it had a lovely feel to come home to after big days exploring the area - so much to do FYI! Vicky our host was fantastic- I didn’t need to contact her once as everything was exactly as it said it was. There was an abundance of staples, clean bath towels, blankets, cleaning products, toilet paper, waffle ingredients (kids fav!!) If you are looking for a different but memorable experience- this is it!
Lovely stay at the Red Rattler, wonderful location we loved exploring the surrounds:) Would highly recommend for large families/groups of 5-6. Plenty of space - trains are charming and add a lovely dynamic to the stay.
This is my favourite property ever. Whether your with a group of friends or family with children , Red Rattlers will not disappoint. Authentic and original with all the modern comforts of home this property has been beautifully restored and furnished. Vicki was punctual, friendly and helpful. She showed us around the carriages explaining how things worked, included were lovely little touches like fresh milk, tea, coffee (coffee pod) a waffle maker with recipe and ingredients.
The bedding was excellent quality , the surroundings were tranquil and Murwillumbah is only a ten minute drive if you fancy a spot of shopping (art gallery and antique shops are a must) Lots of pictures and information on the restoration of the carriages, (a very small room, the driver’s compartment at the front of the train has been left unrestored to give you an idea of just how much work went into this restoration).
I loved sitting in the dining car (original seats and tables) of an evening , relaxing with a glass of wine and playing one of many games that were supplied at the property, with my friends. Train enthusiasts will really appreciate this property. I thoroughly recommend a stay here.
Vickis place was absolutely gorgeous!! Very cleverly set out on a beautiful plot and gorgeous location. Wheelchair accessible as well up to the trains. We loved our stay! Got the fire going at night and not far from any amenities. Vicki was lovely and we enjoyed ya d every second of our stay! Very unique and had wonderful family time
We had a lovely weekend in the Red Rattlers. Such a quaint and interesting space. We had everything we needed and more. Vicki even left us ingredients and toppings to make waffles!

This place is exactly as described. For our two families of four it was absolutely perfect. The restoration of the trains is exquisite and comfortable and was an absolute thrill to stay in. The surrounding property is gorgeous and our kids loved greeting the horse and cows each morning. Quiet and serene, I wholeheartedly recommend this for anyone looking for a comfortable and unique stay in one of the most beautiful parts of Australia. Thank you Vicki for your warm hospitality and ensuring we were looked after. We will be back.
I highly recommend this wonderful, quirky experience. Vicki is an excellent host. She was there right on time for check in and check out, was a very welcoming host and even set us up with a recipe and equipment for a waffle breakfast. It was a great experience staying in these refurbished train carriages. They’ve done the layout perfectly for chilling with family and friends. The location is also very beautiful.

Our family (including our doggie family member Ruby) had a wonderful weekend away in the Red Rattlers. Such an amazing place to stay, full of so much character and vintage details. We all enjoyed the waffles! Lovely touch. Great and unique place to stay. Thanks.
We had a really good time and enjoyed our stay in this unique accommodation. Feel very lucky to have had the opportunity to spend few relaxing days here.
You’ll absolutely love this place. If you remember the red rattlers, it will be a wonderful step back in time. The yard is fantastic. Vicki is ever so accommodating and very easy to communicate with. I would definitely recommend climbing aboard the 1928 Red Rattlers.
The Red Rattlers were great. Comfortable and stocked with everything we needed. A waffle maker and ingredients to make them provided for breakfast was a huge hit with the kids!

We had the best 4 day break for 2 families of 4. Kids and adults had a great time and made some fantastic memories Vicki was a great communicator before and during our stay. Would highly recommend.
