Being based in the Yarra Valley gives me locality to so much beauty, culture and activity while still being only an hour away from Melbourne.

Fright Night on The Ghost Train at Yarra Valley Railway

Yarra Valley Railway in Healesville is joining in with the Halloween festivities with their very popular annual Ghost Train extravaganza.
Running on Friday 26th and Saturday 27th October, this train ride is the perfect activity for those who love a theatrical Halloween ride with a few jump scares thrown in for good measure!
The Friday night session has rides on the hour commencing at 8pm and finishing with the final ride at midnight. The Saturday night session offers rides from the earlier time of 6pm, running through to midnight as well.
Ticket cost is $35 per Adult and $30 for Children or Concession Cardholders. The Ghost Train is suitable for Children 12 and over. The ride is not recommended for children under 5 years of age.
