A pleasant one hour round trip, it's nice to have a break on the train from walking around the market. Frankly there's not an awful lot to see but it's nice to make a donation to the good people who keep the train going.

Every Sunday you can travel on a restored 1950's railcar along a 9km route through the Central Victorian Highlands between Daylesford & Bullarto. The journey takes 30 minutes each way and costs $15 return. There are four services, the first one at 10.45am. The last service of the day only goes as far as Musk, a station midway along the...

The trip takes an hour round trip. You journey across farmland to another old rail station where you can stop and walk around for a few minutes. A great trip if you have young kids.

we went to the Sunday market at the station, which was great then took a trip on the old railway. We loved it, the scenery was breathtaking and the ride on this old train from Wigan, UK was just wonderful.

The museum on the station was fascinating, with a range of quality souvenirs to buy. My ride on the 1930s vintage rail motor to Bullarto and back through the Wombat Forest was great. The Sunday Market is there every weekend and there are over 50 stalls.

Good for the kids. Nice little scenic (not spectacular, but nice enough) railway that goes for about 45 min return.

A very enjoyable trip through farmland and forest on an old rail-motor. An authentic experience of what train travel would have been like in the Daylesford area. Highly recommended.

Loved every second of our rail trip. Great scenery, and the train was just as it would have been in its heyday. The driver was happy to be photographed with us too! If anything, the trip was too short!

My husband & I rode the Daylesford Spa Country Railway last Sunday 27th July. We both enjoyed the trip to Musk & the return trip to Daylesford. Although couple of windows were in need of repair the return trip was worth the chilly carriage ride. The train is in process of being renovated & the statione & equipment. Would encourage... More
