Victorian Goldfields Railway

Victorian Goldfields Railway
Be transported back in time with the Victorian Goldfields Railway and enjoy a true heritage experience on board the steam train from Castlemaine to picturesque Maldon.

Travelling in authentic wooden carriages to the historic township of Maldon, you’ll be forgiven for thinking it’s the early 1900s. Maldon itself is best explored on foot, with cafes and shops aplenty.

The steam train generally operates on Wednesdays and Sundays, but there are often additional services during school holidays. Visit the website to view the timetable, fares and to book online.
