We were all excited about this trip. As far as us adults we knew we were on a twenty minute trip to a winery, where we were going to have a picnic with hopefully a wine purchase or two.
The kids were excited for the train ride and they were not disappointing. They loved every minute, seeing a mob of kangaroos, going through a tunnel and having the conductor asking for, and punching a triangle hole in their tickets.
The parents were not so happy though, because the train did not go to the actual winery. It stopped, due to a broken bridge, the driver changed ends and we railed back to our original destination. Sad face.
We alighted the train, came across a HUGE bloody dog in the station, and worked on finding somewhere else we could enjoy our picnic.
Next time I will make sure to take the seat at the front of the train. The view coming in and out of the tunnel was gorgeous and I couldn't get a great photo of it.
When the bridge is fixed and the train goes through to the Tarrawarra Winery, I will most definitely take the train ride again someday in the future. I am pretty certain we will be back in Healesville again.
Marvelling at the size of this dog, we were informed that it's only four months old with it's owner remarking, "You should see the mother!"
