2022 Private Bookings Full

Thank you for your interest in booking a function with us.  Private bookings at our railway are incredibly popular, and unfortunately all available spots for 2022 are fully booked with no further bookings available at this time.

Bookings for 2023 are open, and should you wish to enquire regarding holding your function at our railway we encourage you to contact us early to avoid disappointment.

We appreciate your understanding and continuing support of our railway.

Located in the center of the railway amongst the trees and trains, our undercover private picnic area is ideal for functions large and small.

The picnic area includes a concrete floor and cafe blinds to help guard against the fickle Melbourne weather.  Folding tables and chairs are included along with two BBQ hot plates.  240 V power is also available within the picnic area.

The picnic area can be accessed from 10:30 AM until 1:30 PM, with clean up to be finished by 2:00pm.  Cleaning equipment is provided by the society.

To find out more information, please make a booking enquiry and one of our friendly volunteers will in touch to discuss further with you and answer any questions you may have.

Places are limited, so it is best to enquire and book early to avoid disappointment.
