The Yarra Valley Railway in beautiful Healesville will be once again hosting their renowned Easter Extravaganza. This is a great opportunity to bring the family along for a lovely Easter day out, plus the added bonus of experiencing the fun of being a passenger on a Historical Train, as well as taking a good look at the historical building of the Yarra Valley Railway, which is part of the Healesville Historical Walk.
