A fantastic miniature railway. The detail in the engines and carriages is fantastic. The ride lasts about 5 to 8 minutes and travels through tunnels, over bridges through crossings and winds through the trees. There is also a really good play ground for the kids opposite the station

I have been to the Diamond Valley Railway several times over the last 15 years and always have a great time. The Railway includes about 15 miniature trains that take passengers on a 10 minute journey through lovely bushland and landscaped tracks. The Railway is run by volunteers and they donate a portion of takings to local charities. The queue... More

We visited during children's week and the railway was giving free rides. Although there were big crowds the staff were quick and efficient. We had 2 9 month old babies and my little 11 week old. The babies enjoyed it (but my LO slept in the carrier the whole trip) but it seemed that children older than 1 got the... More

Great place for little kids! So many trains. Probably 10 run at a time. Tracks everywhere so you never have to wait too long to get a ride. At $3 a ride per person, it's not expensive which is great. There is a very big oval for ports, playgrounds for the kids to play & BBQ's for picnics & party... More

The kids will love this. Great day out for little kids to ride on the mini trains. Adults can ride with them too.

Heston and Gordon would snag one here and declare they couldn't better it. A plethora of choices: onions or not. Ditto tomato and barbecue sauces / mustard... any permutation. Awesome waiting staff. Free bread. Free onions. How do they do it for a lousy $2.50?? With love. For local community projects.

For the princely sum of $3 each person (children under 2 free), you get a lengthy miniature train ride, along a labyrinth of tracks with authentic features along the journey (several tunnels, other trains chugging by, level crossings, flashing lights, all the while enjoying the Eltham bush). The ride is not short, about 20 minutes, very generous. There is a... More

This a terrific day out. Kids and adults all love the experience. Despite the graffiti that blights Eltham, the DV railway is a must for all famlies. Get out there on a sunny sunday and take a picnic lunch, it's a 10 out of 10

Plenty of things to do with kids. Ride on the train a couple of times, visit one of the two playgrounds, run around in the field. What fun!
