Important information

Private Bookings Cancelled

Due to the current, and rapidly evolving, COVID-19 virus situation, in the interests of safety for our members and visitors the Box Hill Miniature Steam Railway Society has cancelled all Private Bookings and is not taking any future bookings until further notice.  Box Hill Miniature Steam Railway Society apologises for any inconvenience.

Please look after yourselves and each other, and we hope to open our railway and see you there as soon as it is safe to do so.

Picnic Area

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 11:00 AM until 2:00 PM, with clean up to be finished by 2:30pm.  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.
