A May weekend held 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.

To see some of the past action, type "Southern Highlands Steamup" into Youtube Search and select from a number of videos taken over the years.

This Steamup is run amongst the history, beauty and charm of the Southern Highlands and numerous attractions including the NSW Rail 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 the Monday preceding the event.  Registration details are expected to be available in the February prior.

The next SHSU will be held over Saturday 18th and Sunday 19th May 2024 with the possibility of a private garden railway visit available on Friday 17th May for those registering for the full weekend.  
Details and registration forms will be available from this web site in the February before the Steamup.
