EXPLORE AUSTRALIA'S FAVOURITE STEAM TRAIN!
Step into a timeless world of wonder with Australia's favourite steam train: Puffing Billy, located in the heart of the Dandenong Ranges. Recognised as one of the finest preserved steam trains in the world, Puffing Billy operates every day of the year, except Christmas Day, thanks to the tireless efforts of their volunteers.
Experience the magic of steam train travel from the moment you arrive with the sight of the historic locomotives preparing for departure at the station, the smell of steam billowing out of the vessel's chimney and the evocative sound of the train's whistle.
Built in 1900 to serve the local communities that lived in the hills, carry anything from passengers to timber, livestock, potatoes and plants, the Railway is now a major tourist attraction that invites visitors to come and experience a century old tradition.
Ride in open side carriages over the hill, down the valley and into the forest of the original mountain track between Belgrave and Gembrook and enjoy the simplicity and beauty of the region.
