Came across this quite by chance in the quaint little town of Healesville. It was Easter Sunday and a warm day, so perfect for a trip on this little old train. The Easter Bunny was hopping about in a really hot furry rabbit suit giving...More

We visited the Healesville Railway during recent stay in the town. The enthusiasm of the volunteers and their commitment was so impressive as well as passing on their knowledge to interested visitors. The journey was great and there was an unscheduled stop so that we...More

Not sure if it was the rail car, the scenery or the passionate people who make it happen that we enjoyed the most, but what a wonderful, quaint little railway. The weather wasn't great, but that did not spoil a wonderful journey. Admittedly it is...More

A great way to kill an hour when in Healesville. Don't expect anything too flash, its just an old train that goes a little ways along the track and then comes back exactly the same way. Some nice views of the local bushland along the...More

Rather slow ride left the family feeling underwhelmed and unexcited at the end of it. Interesting going through some tunnels. The scenery was nice but nothing outstanding. Not good value for money at $39 for a family. There is a playground outside the railway station...More

The Yarra Valley Railway is a unique olde world way to spend an hour or so when visiting Healesville. On our trip we were lucky to have a fabulous conductor who entertained us with an interesting and amusing commentary. As we meandered down the track...More

Great fun and really welcoming and knowledgable volunteer crew. Kids were very excited to sound the horn. Looking forward to going back when the line is extended to Yarra Glen.

30 mins return journey on a small diesel is enjoyable for kids. My kids liked it. $39 for family is bit expensive for the length of the trip, but worth for a cause to help volunteers build and maintain the railway. A play area opposite...More

Excellent trip. The kids loved it. The staff are all very friendly and it's affordable for families. Make sure you get there early as it fills up fast and is only small. Will come again!
