Bendigo Easter Festival - Sunday 21st April 2019


Join Steamrail as we head to Bendigo for a day at the Bendigo Easter Festival behind historic high speed passenger locomotive R711 "Spirit of Bendigo".

There is much to see and do for the whole family at the Bendigo Easter Festival.  Watch the Gala Parade, be entertained by roving street performers, visit the Rotary Art and Craft market or art gallery, be enthralled by the Goldfields library story telling tree, have fun at the Central Carnival on the rides, ride the vintage tram, wander around and admire the grandeur of the ‘gold era’ buildings or have a quiet lunch at one of the many fine hotels and cafes.

The Gala Parade concludes with the iconic Chinese display from the Bendigo Chinese Association; where you'll witness the amazing Sun Loong, the world's longest imperial Chinese dragon, weave through Bendigo's historic and beautiful streetscapes for the very last time.  This year he will be joined by new dragon Dai Gum Loong in his first parade appearance.  

Sit back in your comfortable compartment and enjoy the scenery or relax in Moorabool Club Car and enjoy morning tea as our classic steam locomotive powers through the line's historic tunnels and viaducts.  On arrival at Bendigo there is four hours to explore.  After a full day out, relax in your comfortable 1920s or 1940s carriage with a snack, or some light refreshments as we take you home to Melbourne.


Our on train facilities include a kiosk, which stocks a wide range of light refreshments, sandwiches souvenirs and hot and cold drinks.  A licenced bar will also be opened serving a range of wine, beer and spirits. *
