Departing Castlemaine at 12:00pm, you’ll get to enjoy the stunning interiors of our restored parlour cars Tambo and Macedon. You can order a drink at the onboard bar. Light jazz echoes through the carriages as you contemplate whether you want to sit in your own private booth, travel in style in cane or leather chairs in the lounge areas or watch the world go by from the balcony.


We have 2 hours at our destination - plenty of time to relax and explore the quaint town - and includes a delicious 2 course pub lunch at The Maldon Hotel.
