Walk the labyrinth and enjoy the history at railway park
The Healesville Railway Park is a true gem with lots to see and do.

There is a beautiful picnic area which is topped by an arbour made from recycled railway lines, now covered with flourishing grape-vines. It is a beautiful setting to relax or enjoy a meal.

Beside the picnic area is the labyrinth path. This is a magnificent piece of art created in porphyry stone and Castlemaine slate and is surrounded by gardens which are pleasing to the eye, as are the hand-painted mosaic tiles on the retaining wall.

The children's park is populated with swings, slides, climbing equipment, pretend trains and so much more to provide lots of fun for the little ones.

Of course, there is also the historic Yarra Valley Railway, which is how the park received its name.

The Lilydale train lines for the Healesville railway were closed in 1980. The station, trains and carriages have been preserved and restored by dedicated volunteers and are items of true local history. You are able to wander along and view the machinery and look at the old Station Building.

The railway operates rides on Sundays and Public Holidays, along with Wednesdays during the school holidays. Trains depart on the hour from at 10am through to 4pm.
