A biennial May weekend held during even numbered years in Australia's NSW Southern Highlands with the RitG 45mm and 32mm gauge live steam layout suitable for main line, narrow gauge and vintage steamers for all to run on.  Experience the camaraderie of like minded individuals and the exchange of ideas and opinions in the tradition of the Great Southern Steamup, GRITH and Wintersun.

All this amongst the history, beauty and charm of the Southern Highlands and numerous attractions including the NSW Rail Transport Museum at Thirlmere.

For comfort and insurance reasons, these Steamups are not open to the public - you will have to register beforehand to attend and do so by the evening of Monday preceding the event.

2020 Southern Highlands Steamup CANCELLED

The 2020 Southern Highlands Steamup was cancelled due to the COVID-19 Coronavirus pandemic.

A decision on whether to hold the next SHSU in 2021 or 2022 will be made late in 2020 and will depend upon the situation with the pandemic and whether other national events such as GRITH 2021 are proceeding.
