In a great boost to end of school holiday activities, the Railway Museum at Valley Heights is running* its famous “Valley Heights Mixed” steam train on the Saturday and Sunday of the Australia Day long weekend. “Stevo” the 120 year old saddle tank shunting engine again takes to the tracks to haul an 1890 end-platform “cowboy’ carriage on a 20 minute ride* through the Museum precinct. Many other great exhibits are open for inspection, including the two Model Rooms running HO scale trains. All rides* are included in admission fees.

*Subject to high fire risk or ban
