The Margate Train offers shopping with a difference at Margate, southern Tasmania. Margate is 20 minutes south of Hobart (19 kilometres /12 miles) and a short drive south of Kingston.

The Margate Train - formerly known as the Tasman Limited - made its final rail journey on 28 July 1978. The Tasman Limited was built in England in 1950 and served as a passenger service between Hobart and Launceston until 1978.The train's carriages now house a variety of retail businesses including arts and crafts, bric-a-brac, a specialist book exchange, and a buffet car offering espresso coffee and delicious Tasmanian produce. There is also a huge antiques warehouse and second hand shop here, located in an old IXL apple packing shed, as well as a children's play area, toilets and plenty of car parking.
