We are Cashless!

Here at the Mornington Tourist Railway, our volunteers love spending our time making your day a memorable one.

Therefore, we've made the decision to go cashless to speed up queue times, remove the administration for our volunteers and give everyone a better experience; not to mention better hygiene and increased security!

We dont have facilities to accept cash or give change at any of our outlets. 

We do however accept Visa, Mastercard, American Express and eftpos cards; Samsung Pay, Google Pay and Apple Pay; and best of all we dont surcharge. 


A bit about booking!

We run heritage train services along the original Mornington Branch Line every Sunday of the month, and additional Special Event dates.

Bookings are essential on Special Event services and around busy periods.

Pricing may vary for special events.

Online booking closes 30 minutes prior to each scheduled departure from Moorooduc. Limited walkup tickets are available at the Moorooduc Station Ticket Office. We recommend you book ahead to avoid disappointment.
