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

Even though it was a cold day we stepped into the Railcar which was nicely heated. With our tickets we were given a brochure which described the history of the line and what we would see along the way. Leaving Daylesford station we traversed farmland before climbing into the hills. The line then travelled through the forest and passed through... More
