A journey on the historic Victorian Goldfields Railway is an iconic experience that places you in the much-loved township of Maldon. Maldon's significant history is safeguarded by the National Trust, meaning that visitors can literally see Maldon's past through the ghost signs on the walls, the streetscape facades that retain their grandeur, and the many gold-mining relics around the outskirts of town. Maldon these days is eclectic and vibrant, with a contemporary offering of designer wares, art, and local produce that perfectly balances the new with the old. During your 2.5 hour whistle stop on a Sunday afternoon, you'll have time to explore the sights located within walking distance of the railway station around Main street and High street.
We're certain that this charming, friendly and nostalgic place will provide an enjoyable stopover and may even lure you back for a longer stay to explore further afield. We've provided a list of things that are currently open as well as some tempting suggestions for things to see and do when you next return to Maldon for that longer stay!
Maldon has a Visitor Information Centre which is open 7 days a week 9am-5pm. Located at 93 High Street Maldon in the historic gardens. Pop in for a chat and find out any events or experiences that are happening while you're in town.
