Kooky and very very different. Even the teenager and the tweenager enjoyed themselves. This is a weird and wonderful homage to miniature figurines and glitter paint across all decades.

A fun place for train buffs and families alike. Don't miss this where you can see a great set up and if you have model railways yourself you may gain some valuable inspriation. A place to love a place to find your inner child.

A quirky magical must do. Don't miss the opportunity to share this experience for kids young and old. Truly unique! Wander through the indoor and outdoor displays of model making that references fantasy, fairy tales and super heroes and model trains.

The façade hides a world of fantasy and adventure. It takes the imagination back to dreams of fairies, wizards, pirates, outerspace journeys, magical castles and mythical creatures - all embraced and interlinked by the most wonderful model railways. There is nothing like this in the world, and here it is, quietly hidden in Penola. Worth the trip - from Anywhere!

What a quirky and different place. We were driving through Penola and saw the sign for this place, my 4 year old loves model trains so we thought we would stop in. Glad we did! How to describe it? Its like a model rain set you would make if you were on acid, then took some magic mushrooms, then decided... More

Arrived just after 10am on a Saturday. Met by Rose and paid to get in. Might be a bit expensive for some people but compared to other places charging entry fee it was on par. Had hot scones with jam and cream and a coffee which was reasonably price. Was given a guided tour by Graham who is also the... More

Our family loves railways so this was a must stop. $35 for our family of 8. We were warmly welcomed and guided through by the owner and creator of this quirky attraction. There are railways and displays inside and outside all very colourful and sparkly. An incentive to win a prize is at stake and to win the prize answers... More

So much work has gone into this fantasy railway, the is a guided tour which I was hesitant to do at first as it was really just to get the kids out of the house, but after we were given things to look for by the station master Graham I found my sons enjoyed themselves more, they were given a...

You think that you are going to see a model railway - in fact there are six of them in all shapes and sizes, with plans for several more. The scenery is all based on fantasy - you name it - it is there somewhere - from "Barbie" to floating castles and even a working cable car. We spent an... More
