DIAMOND VALLEY RAILWAY INC.
One of Australia's Finest Passenger Carrying Miniature Railways
THE PARK AND SURROUNDS
The Diamond Valley Railway is located within Eltham Lower Park which is located within the Nillumbik Shire Council. The bushland setting of this park includes two adventure playgrounds, both with covered barbeque areas and tables and accessible toilets. Extensive walking paths span the park and run through the railway and down to the Yarra River where there is an observation platform and impressive bridge across the river.
Opposite Diamond Valley Station you can find a sausage sizzle run jointly by the Eltham Rotary and various Community groups. An Ice Cream Van can also be found here as well as a Coffee Van. Just across Main Road you can find the Eltham Tea House which is currently closed for renovations but will reopen in the near future.
The new accessible adventure playground opposite the railway features a continuous accessible pathway throughout the site, all-abilities harness seats on swings and flying fox, elevated sand trays for wheelchair access, tactile panels with Braille and Auslan symbols throughout the site and sculptures outlining the life cycle of the Eltham Copper Butterfly including wooden caterpillars and giant ants.
