The Victorian Goldfields Railway is a remnant of the extensive branch line railway system which served rural Victoria from around 1880 through to the 1970's. Our trip is a winding journey through the forest and open lands of Central Victoria from Maldon to Castlemaine where following a twenty minute stopover we will head back to Maldon for lunch.
Lunch is a la carte from a set 2 course menu including tea and coffee from the onsite facilities. All other drinks to own accounts.
Please note: In the event that the day has been declared as a Severe Total Fire Ban, an alternative run has been arranged between morning tea and lunch. In such an event attendees will have the rail leg of their journey refunded.
