Lovely Picnic Spot under the Vintage Rails.


Your ticket cost includes a train ride on the historic Yarra Valley Railway, which will be running trains on the hour, from 10am through to 4pm. These rides are a lovely little flashback of history in a beautiful country setting. I believe the Easter Bunny will be a passenger on each Easter Sunday ride also!

In addition to the train rides, there will also be kids colouring-in on offer.

The Healesville Railway Park at the Yarra Valley Railway is super fun for the kids, as is walking the Healesville Labyrinth, which is located at the Railway Park also.

The Yarra Valley Railway is also part of the Healesville Historic Walk. This free to wander walk is based around significant historical sites in the Healesville township. The path from the Railway leads to the Main Street of Healesville and you can follow the walk and read the information boards at your own pace and take in a bit of the local history.
