Victorian Goldfields Railway is whisking families off to the historic gold mining town of Maldon for a delightful day trip these Winter school holidays!
Every weekend from the 1st to 16th July, you and your family can hop aboard an authentic steam heritage train from Castlemaine and enjoy a fun-filled trip through Central Victoria.
Come along and open the windows, perhaps see a wild kangaroo or two and listen to the whistle! You and your family can travel in individual compartments and be treated to a fantastic range of entertainment including Lazarus the performing ram and roving clowns, plus there will be interactive balloon and singing activities, puzzles and face painting!*
Once you arrive at Maldon, you can stretch your legs at the local park and take on one of the scenic walking trails (make sure to pack your own gourmet picnic basket) or head to one of the town's many family-friendly cafes for a delicious bite to eat with the kids! There is ample time to explore all that the authentic pioneer township has to offer.
It's sure to be a great day out for the whole family these Winter school holidays.
