Royal Children’s Hospital Good Friday Appeal Public Running Day

April 15 @ 11:00 AM - 4:00 PM


This is a special Public Running Day with all money raised donated to the Royal Children’s Hospital Good Friday Appeal to help with the life saving care and ground breaking research carried out at the Royal Children’s Hospital in Melbourne.  By purchasing a ticket and riding on our railway on this special Public Running Day, you can help the thousands of children, and their families, who rely on the work of the Royal Children’s Hospital every year.

Over the last 20 years, your support of our Good Friday Public Runs have resulted in over $100,000.00 donated to the Royal Children’s Hospital!!!

Avoid the morning queues!  Tickets for rides between 11:00 AM and 12:00 PM only may be pre-purchased online at a discounted price.


(Visitors with pre-purchased tickets, please arrive by 11:30 AM as late arrivals may not be refunded.)

Tickets may also be purchased throughout the day from the ticket window adjacent to the platform entrance using either card (preferred) or cash payments (with correct amount, no change available), and remember children under 2 years of age ride FREE!!!

Why not pack a picnic and make a day of it with your family and friends.  (Please note however, that alcohol is not permitted anywhere within the grounds.)

Be sure to check out the Public Running Days page for more details and important safety information.

We hope to see you there.


In line with the current Victorian COVIDSafe Settings, all passengers and volunteers aged 16 years or older must check in at our railway using the Service Victoria app and show evidence of COVID-19 double vaccination.  Posters with the Service Victoria QR code and information are located around the station precinct.

We appreciate your patience and respect as our volunteers verify these requirements.
