Diamond Valley Railway (7¼” Gauge Ride-on Trains)

Back in the April School Holidays, my eldest Daughter Abigail and I joined her “Pa” for a ride around the Diamond Valley Railway in Melbourne’s Norther-Eastern Suburb of Eltham.

This 7¼” Gauge Railway is great for all ages! Kids (and Big Kids) love riding on the trains as they wind their way along the almost 2km of track through Eltham Lower Park. Passing over bridges and through tunnels, there is excitement around every bend!


The Railway is operated 100% by volunteers, operating club owned locos and rolling stock. There are some privately owned locomotives who’s owners love to share them with the broader community. Operating on Sunday’s from 11am, the $4 ticket price is more than fair for the enjoyment you will get from visiting this picturesque location. Children under 2 years travel for free! (Note: Check out www.dvr.com.au for more details about the railway).


To take a look at this great attraction, jump onboard with us and enjoy the scenery!
