Altona Miniature Railway

by Lorraine A (follow)
Altona Miniature Railway is a popular spot with the littlies and the young at heart.



For $3 a ride you get to enjoy a loop of the grounds which covers mostly flat land, a dark tunnel and a few small hills.

My kids enjoyed their visit about a year ago and were smiling from ear to ear the entire time. My little man got scared in the tunnel as it was really dark and the noise was very loud but loved it otherwise. The picnic area is nothing fancy but the kids will like eating whilst watching the trains come and go.
