The West Coast Wilderness Railway is the name given to the publicly funded reconstruction of the railway line from Queenstown to Strahan on Tasmania's west coast.

After a period closed for maintenance work, the full line will reopen in December 2014 with a new timetable.

The Summer 2015 timetable includes services from Regatta Point (Strahan) each weekday, and services from Queenstown on Wednesday through to Sunday. These are a mix of half day and full day trip, and where possible all trains are steam hauled.
