Event Details

The Ultimate Beer, Food & Steam Train Experience

Indulge as you are taken into a world of decadence…. first class style…. in 1920’s era club and parlour carriages

As your steam train takes you through the countryside from Castlemaine to Maldon, you are taking another journey. Beginning with an easy drinking wheat beer you sample a range of specialty beers culminating in a rich chocolate porter. Light snacks are served by our stewards on the train. Tasting notes are provided.

You will enjoy a gourmet lunch at Maldon’s Kangaroo Hotel^^ and a beer from their extensive craft beer range is included.

For those who are not quite such beer enthusiasts we do offer alternatives; local wines, ciders and soft drinks.

Leave the car at home and travel by train. It’s a comfortable fast trip in modern Velocity services with V/line.

Whether you are a seasoned beer drinker or just want to explore some of the finest brews around, this is for you.

Get a group of friends together, it’s a great day out.
