MALDON CARMANS TUNNEL, WINERY AND LUNCH OPTION: For those who would like to explore Maldon, we have a great coach package available. Starting at the railway station our private coach will take us to Carmans Tunnel for a tour of the mine, then on to one of the district’s wineries to enjoy a tasting, before taking on a two course lunch at the Kangaroo Hotel. After lunch we visit more wineries before returning to Maldon on the VGR branch line train.
SATURDAY EVENING DINNER TRAIN TO CASTLEMAINE OPTION: Enjoy a relaxing ride to Castlemaine station on Saturday evening. Sit back and enjoy the sound of the locomotive working hard through the forest as the sun goes down over the horizon. Take in a beverage or two before we reach our destination, then it’s just a short walk to our venue for a two course scrumptious meal. We depart again at 9.30pm for a leisurely journey back to Maldon, completing our evening dinner train ride. We once again settle into our sleeping compartments for the only night in Maldon.
Sunday morning sees us on the Maldon station platform. Enjoy a country cooked breakfast before we set off for Castlemaine for the final time this weekend.
We remain in Castlemaine for a while, so the train can be transferred across to the main line for a speedy double headed steam ride back to Southern Cross station, finishing off an exciting weekend away.
Price per head includes all train travel on the Saturday between Maldon and Castlemaine (except Saturday night dinner train).
Breakfast on Saturday and Sunday are included in your fare.
