“Short Diesel train trip”

Yarra Valley Railway
Ranked #6 of 9 Tours in Healesville
Type: Rail Tours, Tours
Attraction details
Reviewed March 18, 2017

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 to railway helps to do a picnic after a ride.

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!

This is an amazing experience for anyone young or old, the rides are based at the beautiful Healesville Station and you board a cute little walker railcar (RM22) The guard really knew his stuff about the railway and pointed out many features along the line including the first 'cricket bat farm.' Beautiful trestle bridges, that you go over and under and a horseshoe shaped tunnel, which I hear is one of Victoria's last of the sort that is still in use. The people are really friendly and I loved how everyone got to go to the drivers cab to see how everything worked. The volunteers were really friendly and we also got a tour of the workshops. The railway will be amazing when it is restored out to Yarra glen. The prices are just right and it's well worth the drive.

Awesome comfortable ride through restored old train through beautiful countryside, over a bridge and through a tunnel, very pleasant and 30 minutes just perfect for the little ones who love trains. Station cafe serves good food and coffee, a fireplace inside adds to atmosphere. Highly recommend. Very affordable.
