Due to the global coronavirus pandemic the Cobden Miniature Railway Park will not be operating until further notice for public runs or private bookings.   This decision has been taken in the best interests of the general public and of our own members.   We hope you understand this change in our normal operations, and that we see you once the situation has returned to normal.

History of the Park

The Cobden Miniature Railway and Mini Golf Park has been established for over 15 years. Site works commenced in February 1994 and the Park was officially opened in June 1994 for its first public run.

It is on the old Cobden Racecourse reserve, and parts of the old running rail from the racecourse can still be seen.

Much of the original racecourse is now occupied by public activities - the Cobden Miniature Railway and Mini Golf Park, the Cobden Pioneer Dairy Park which is also home to the Cobden Historical Society, the Cobden Go-Kart Club, the South Western Restoration Restoration Group, and the Cobden Airport.
