Vintage Trains to View at Yarra Valley Railway.


The Railway Park precinct has a designated picnic area beside the Playground and Labyrinth, which is framed by vintage railway sleepers and covered in pretty vines. It is a truly beautiful area to visit while relaxing and admiring the beauty of the area.

The Park also has a large lawn area - perfect for picnic rugs and a kick of the footy or soccer ball! Several other picnic benches and chairs are scattered throughout also. The Park is a lovely place to have a picnic before or after your train ride!
