Find any young one that doesn’t have a favourite bear. Combine this with one of Victoria’s most famous miniature railway networks, and you have a great day out for the family.

Children who bring their teddy bear to Diamond Valley Railway on any day over the long weekend can ride for FREE. Who says you get never get anything for free?!
Make a day of it, pack a picnic and pull up a spot along the train track for some serious teddy bear spotting. Your arms are going to ache from waving by the time you leave here!
The Diamond Valley Railway has been delighting families for more than five centuries. It’s a great experience for the young and the young at heart. Kids (young and old) will love Riding behind a Steam or Diesel train or even a replica train of little "Puffing Billy" carriages.
