Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Visited with friends, their children & grandchildren. Brought back memories of when our kids and theirs were young. Grew up in Templestowe so local attraction since the 60s and still holds many good memories. Can’t wait to take my unborn grandchildren there !

This is sensational. I’m super impressed by the scale of their train operations: there’s multiple tracks, concurrently operating trains, tunnels, bridges, multiple platforms, and even an operations centre. Diamond Valley is run by volunteers. So this is pure passion. And the whole experience reflects it. This is incredibly unique.

I also would love if they could offer a behind the scenes tour!

An absolute classic in Eltham that I’ve been visiting for 30 years or so. First as a child, now with my own child. Surprisingly long ride is about the best day out with a toddler that I can imagine.

Diamond Valley is without doubt the best miniature railway I have experienced. Run by a team of dedicated volunteers, our 2 year old loves it.

My only advice is to get there early to avoid the queues

If you're looking for a place to have a picnic and day out with the little ones, give this a try. Entry of activities to keep the children entertained.

The Diamond Valley Railway is built for kids. Adults can just fit on. The train does a circuit of Eltham Lower Park. The railway people do a great job of keeping the trains going; they are mainly steam engines. By the way, there is a small fee for kids above infant age. Kids love the Diamond Valley Railway.

The Diamond Valley Miniature Railway proclaims that it is "one of Australia's finest passenger carrying miniature railways." Children love the railway, adults may find the miniature carriages a tight fit. The railway usually runs every Sunday, but the corona virus scare means that operations have been temporarily suspended, but will resume when the crisis is over.. The railway is in Lower Eltham Park. There are several places for kids to play. Eltham Town is five or ten minutes down the road. This is one our favourite Sunday outings, kids love it, especially boys for whom it's like a real train, just smaller. All tickes are $3, except for children under two, who are free..

What a fantastic hidden treasure, any kid (or adult) dream to be sitting behind a railway engine whether it be petrol, diesel or steam powered, the train ride lasts for approximately 14 minutes all for 3 ausd, fantastic valley,
you can also request a tour of the site depending on availability of a volunteer,
Definitely worth visiting this attraction even just to see the variety of Locomotives
