Diamond Valley Miniature Railway
Sundays, 11am to 5pm
Eltham Lower Park, Melways Ref. 21 H10
I've always thought there was something weird about middle-aged men who play with trains but now I kind of see the attraction - these little trains are cool. Complete with mini tunnels, railway crossings and stations, Diamond Valley Railway is a young (and old) boy's dream and it makes for a great sunday outing with under fives.
With a big oval to run around, a playground and quite a few BBQ/picnic spots, Eltham Lower Park is a good place for a play date or a family get-together. There were pony rides and a mobile coffee cart the day we were there, but there were no food options so best to bring your own.
Cost is $3 per passenger for a 15 minute ride, under twos ride free. For further details, visit www.dvr.com.au
