Public Open Days

COVID19 Update – December 2020

Altona Miniature Railway is pleased to announce that we are able to return to offering train rides, albeit slightly different. We will be changing the format of the day – to sessions times on the half-hour. This will offer groups of 1-4 people to book a carriage, that will then take two laps of the 2 laps of the railway for $20 per group.

These days will only be open to the current group booking ticket holders only and NOT THE PUBLIC.

At present we are unable to accept pre-existing tickets that you have purchased prior to our closure. We will advise once these will be in use as our open day’s format changes.

Due to COVID19 requirements, for the safety of our Volunteers and for you the Public,

Unfortunately, our park, tables, seating and toilets are not available at this time.
