LVR is a great way to spend a few hours or even a full day if you want to do and see absolutely everything there.
Upon arrival you are greeted with Benny Halt station where you get your tickets and can pick up some refreshments. If the train isn't due for a few minutes (they leave every 30 minutes) then the children can play on the playground by the station house.
The Benny Halt train takes you at a sedate pace through the valley to reveal the main LVR compound. Here you find a crazy golf course, kayaking lake, cafe, 2nd station house with refreshments and gifts, mini railway that loops up to the large play area and back, electric cars (you need tokens) and plenty of space just to sit and relax.
There is another train that heads up a hill to a 'family play field'. There is a nature trail leading back down to the main area if you don't want to take the return journey.
The food and refreshments on site are of reasonable price or you can take your own picnic which seemed to be a popular option.
All-in-all, it makes for a very relaxing visit and would suit younger children (3-10) rather than those of secondary school age (say 11 and up).
