Step into a timeless world of wonder with Australia’s favourite steam train, Puffing Billy, located in the heart of the Dandenong Ranges and only one-hour east of Melbourne.
Take in the magic of steam train travel from the moment you arrive, with the sight of the historic locomotives being prepared for departure, the smell of steam billowing out of the vessel’s chimney and the evocative sound of the train’s whistle. Before long, jump on board the open side carriages for a serene ride over the hills, across the iconic timber trestle bridges, down the valley and into the forest on the original mountain track between Belgrave and Gembrook.
