 • Information

Thomas River, named in 1801, takes its name from an English deserter, Thomas Bentley. Part of Van Der Kemps missionary, Bentley was killed by a poison Bushman Arrow while crossing the river, thus duly named Thomas River.


The original train station, sited between the stone forts, dates from the late 1870's with the new station coming into being in 1926. The station saw its last train in 1948 when the new line opened.


Thomas River Historical Village, reborn in 2003, has been passionately restored by Jeff and Ann Sansom to take you back to yesteryear.


Classified as a Country Estate with a 2 star rating by the Tourism Grading Council, Thomas River Historical is the place to unravel.

We have an onsite pub and restaurant with a dining hall that can seat 150 people.


Activities include mountain biking, hiking, fishing, bird watching and hunting.


We cater for whatever your needs may be and we are pet friendly.
