The Snow Train (Day Excursion)

Traralgon, VIC, Australia

Sun Aug 7th 2016 at 08:30 until 19:55
Melbourne, Traralgon

Event Details

STEAM INTO THE HEART OF GIPPSLAND ... THE SNOW TRAIN - Sunday 7th August 2016.

Join us for our excursion to the snow – by steam train, of course. Forget the car for a relaxed day out with family and friends aboard the Vintage Train.

Settle back in your compartment and before long, Melbourne will be lost in a trail of steam and smoke as we journey into the fertile farming district of the Latrobe Valley.

The locomotives will work hard as we climb through the green Gippsland hills around Bunyip, Longwarry and Warragul before we make our first stop at Moe. Here passengers can choose from the following options…

MOUNT BAW BAW
Travel by comfortable coach through scenic mountain forest to the snow. Explore the alpine forests with their unique fauna and crisp mountain air as you wander through the snow. As this is a full resort, you are able to hire, toboggans, skis and clothing, to use in the snow. Departure from the mountain is at 4pm, to return to the station for a 5.30pm departure from Moe.

LUNCH AND EXPLORE WALHALLA
For those preferring warmer surroundings, travel by comfortable coach through scenic mountain forests to the Walhalla Miner’s Café or the Walhalla Goldfields Railway goods shed for a two course hot lunch (please indicate your preference).
After lunch, there is time to explore the historic treasures of Walhalla. The famous ‘Long Tunnel Extended’ gold mine offers underground tours at 1pm and 2pm. (Please book this option yourself if you are not doing lunch or the WGR option, as there isn’t enough time to do all three). Visit the many historic buildings and climb to the cricket ground carved high in the surrounding hills. The cemetery, full of history, has graves carved into the side of a mountain, all within walking distance of this unique mountain township.
The Walhalla Goldfields Railway will be running a return journey at 3pm. We have chartered this trip for our passengers from Walhalla station to Thomson and return, so please reserve your ticket on this booking form.

WINERY AND BREWERY TOUR
Tantalise your taste buds with Gippsland’s finest foods, wines and beers. Sample Wild Dog Winery’s cool climate wines then dine at its award winning restaurant with stunning views of the Strzelecki Ranges. After lunch journey on to the Grand Ridge brewery to sample some of its 16 varieties of beers and ciders made from pure mountain water. Enjoy afternoon tea in the charming Yarragon village before returning to Warragul. Drinks are not included in the price.

RAIL ONLY
Travel through the mysterious Haunted Hills, Hearnes Oak and Morwell before arriving in Traralgon, where you will spend a leisurely afternoon. Enjoy a meal in a local hotel or café. Then relax back on the train as our locomotives begin their sprint westward on a course for home.

AIR CONDITIONING
If you wish for a little more travelling comfort, choose the option of cloth seating in an air-conditioned (and heated) carriage.

ON TRAIN SERVICE
Our on-train facilities include kiosks, which stock a wide range of light refreshments, souvenirs and hot and cold drinks. A licensed bar will also be open serving a range of wine, beers and spirits. Our courteous train officers will be on hand throughout the journey to provide any assistance to ensure an enjoyable and safe day. •
