Finding the real treasure in Diamond Creek


Riding our bikes along the Diamond Creek trail, we stumbled across this new Rotary Tram Café. A W-Class vintage tram was perfectly restored by volunteers from the local Men's Shed and converted into a social enterprise coffee shop.

The Rotary Club of Diamond Creek, along with support from Business Sponsors, Families & Council Leaders, contributed to creating a family and dog-friendly cafe and adventure play space that kids won't want to leave. Nestled right amongst the gum trees and the diamond creek, the area was known for its rich gold mining history, so there is plenty to explore around the playground offering a unique historical experience for young and old right in the heart of Diamond Creek.

If coming by train, it's located on the Hurstbridge/Eltham train line. Follow the walking trail and just past the dog park and children play space, you will discover the Rotary Tram cafe, located on up on a hill. It's a hidden gem and makes a great stop for a coffee break.

The pop-up social enterprise cafe is hosted by volunteers from various community organisations such as Araluen, a disability and support service. We are always welcomed with a warm greeting. It's the perfect destination for a quick coffee or tea break or a stop for ice cream, milkshakes, delicious muffins and cakes to help you get on with your journey.

If you have little ones there is a state of the art play space the kids will love. The flying fox is always a favourite when my nephews come to visit! If you have your furry friends with you the dog park is just past the playground, all within easy access from carparks and toilets. Not to mention the brand spanking new electric BBQs for a family picnic.

My favourite kind of trail - flat. This one has a lot to see and do along the way, with the tram café a definite bonus.
