A great way to kill an hour when in Healesville. Don't expect anything too flash, its just an old train that goes a little ways along the track and then comes back exactly the same way. Some nice views of the local bushland along the...More

Rather slow ride left the family feeling underwhelmed and unexcited at the end of it. Interesting going through some tunnels. The scenery was nice but nothing outstanding. Not good value for money at $39 for a family. There is a playground outside the railway station...More

Excellent trip. The kids loved it. The staff are all very friendly and it's affordable for families. Make sure you get there early as it fills up fast and is only small. Will come again!

Go past scenic Yarra Valley, along winery and beautiful valley, farm lands, interesting tunnel and bridges as well as historical Healesville. Well worth a visit! cheap fare too! The railcar they use(Walker RM22) is sooo cute! seats are very comfortable!

This is a really enjoyable way to spend a Sunday. The Cafe (YV Refreshments) is awesome. The train trip is a relaxing ride through lovely scenery. Well worth the $15. I've actually done this trip about 5 times now. Love it :-)
