Don River Railway is a not-for-profit organisation owned and operated by our members and volunteers and was established at Don in 1973 while the trains commenced operating in November 1976. Our achievements are the result of countless thousands of hours of voluntary labour provided by our members. Relax with a 30min return train trip on the historic Melrose Line, taking in views of the township of Don and areas of historic value to the area. The train trip travels on the eastern bank of the Don River to our junction Coles Beach.  On your return, spend some time and visit our museum and workshop. Our heritage locomotives and carriages are on display throughout the grounds and workshop.
