Roughly an hour away from home, but well and truly worth the drive! This is a popular destination for families and parties, with so much space to run, equipment to play on and last, but not least, the awesome Diamond Valley Miniature Railway!

the miniature railway! And what a great experience it is. I think a full circuit took around 15 minutes,, and you travel past many others also enjoying their rides on these miniature trains. Through tunnels, over bridges, past people waving at the crossings – it really is well thought out. And the best bit? A trip costs a whole $3 and kids under 2 are free! Right next to the railway there were a few vans selling food and coffee, and a further 2 minute walk brings you to one epic fenced-in playground. On the day we visited there were also pony rides – I think Jack took awhile to figure out what a pony was – slightly bigger than Benny! The only downside is the struggle to find a car park. Even though there are heaps around, due to the popular nature of the railway and the facilities, it brings in a lot of people to the area on a lovely day.
