From Sydney, How to take a ride on the Puffing Billy Steam Train

For starters

Puffing Billy is a unique experience on a steam locomotive line built in the year 1900 to serve the local communities that lived in the hills to the east of Melbourne. Back in its heyday it carted people, timber, livestock, agricultural harvests and plants. The railway is now a major tourist attraction that welcomes visitors to experience a century and a quarter old tradition every day of the year, except Christmas Day. Puffing Billy relies on the tireless efforts of more than 300 volunteers!

To take a ride on Puffing Billy from Sydney, you will need to travel to Melbourne. You could likely fly but we encourage you to take a road trip and enjoy either the Coastal Discovery Drive or the Inland Discovery Drive to make the most of a holiday exploring the diverse regions between Sydney and Melbourne.
