Melbourne Steam Traction Engine Club is Melbournes premier vintage machinery museum with a comprehensive collection of vintage machinery from a bygone era.
The museum is open for viewing each Saturday and Sunday, see the engines run on the last Sunday of each month (except December) when many of them are fired up.

The miniature railway operates every Sunday, weather permitting, from 11am to 4pm, except for Christmas/New Year. The track runs for about 1km around the perimeter of the site. On the trip you pass the lake complete with numerous ducks and other water birds, and you view some of the museum machinery around the track. On the last Sunday of the month the train is pulled by the steam locomotive. On other Sundays the diesel outline engine is used.
