Melbourne Steam Traction Engine Club is a great place to visit for those interested in all things locomotive.
This vintage engine museum is sprawled out over 6 hectares of land in the suburb of Scoresby, less than 30kms from the Melbourne CBD.
Melbourne Steam Traction Engine Club, Miniature Railway Rides & Prices
From gigantic engines used to plough tracts of land to smaller engine models used for less demanding tasks there is so much on display. There is an array of steam vehicles on display, alongside industrial steam engines that show the remarkable progress made by technology over the years. Other engines on display include equipment used to build roads in the early days, draught horses and varied tractor engines.
Kids will also love the museum as there is a miniature railway on which they can ride. The miniature railway operates on Sundays between 11am-4pm (weather permitting). The 1km track will take you past the lake where kids can see the ducks as they ride past. Rides cost $2.50.
The Melbourne Steam Traction Engine Club also hosts Scoresby Steam Fest each March where visitors will be able to witness Straddle truck demos, a tractor parade, steam ploughing, see a stone crusher in action, road making and so much more!
To get there via car, take Eastlink and get off at Ferntree Gully Road. If coming via public transport, take the #693 bus from Oakleigh or Ferntree Gully Station.
