Last weekend we took a trip up to Diamond Valley to check out their mini railway. The kids were so excited because it was one of those spur of the moment ideas that all of us thought would be a fun day out. Its located a bit outside Melbourne so after a car trip for about 45 minutes we were driving up to the railway grounds. We have never been there before so we didn't know what to expect but it was such a wonderful little place with some really amazing little trains with carriages. The trains were little perfect replicas of the different big train models and the kids were thrilled to be able to go on it. I loved how the train drivers looked like they really enjoyed every ride and you could tell it was something they loved doing.

After a bit of a waiting in line it was finally our turn to hop on. We were in luck and got to go on first which meant we could sit right behind the train engine. The ride was so good, it went over bridges, under tunnels and everywhere you saw happy kids waving from their carriages. It actually packed some punch that train so it went fast in some sections which made the kids shout even louder. Every sign and building was miniature and you felt a bit like a giant sneaking a ride on the roof of a train.

After the train ride we enjoyed some lunch and the kids tried their first Slurpee. There was also a lovely big playground right next to the railway, so the kids played there for the remaining of the day. All in all a great way to spend a Sunday, and definitely worth a visit if you are in the neighborhood.


  1. It's great isnt' it!
    I love how it is all run by volunteers who obviously are total train nerds.

    1. Hi Kerstin, yes so great its run by volunteers and YES definitely train nerds :) But it is not hard to see why they are, its almost every boy/man's dream scenario.
