• Ales on Rails Steam Train in November 2021


Grab your friends and plan a fun gastronomic journey on the heritage steam train. Indulge as you are taken into a world of decadence.... first class style.... in 1920's era club and parlour carriages. Settle into your comfy seats, sipping craft beers from Central Victorian brewers, while chugging along taking in the smells and sights of the majestic bush setting. 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 the stewards on the train. Tasting notes are provided. Wine, ciders and soft drinks is also provided for non-beer drinkers. 

Disembark the train in Maldon and wander to the Kangaroo Hotel for lunch, which is included in the price. The 'roo' is a much-loved icon in Maldon, with a lively history spanning the goldrush era to now. 

Make sure you have a wander around Maldon to pick up some goodies from the eclectic retail offering too.
