Take a ride back to a bygone era on Puffing Billy Railway. One of the world's best-preserved steam railways takes you 25.1 km (15.6 mi) from Belgrave to Gembrook, through the beautiful Dandenong Ranges. The open-sided carriages of this century-old steam train deliver unobstructed views of the surrounding emerald temperate forest. Although the line is relatively short, the ride moves at a leisurely pace, leaving you plenty of time to soak in the scenery.

It is so exciting that I will be taking my grandchildren soon. #puffingbilly
We had so much fun! Make sure you book well in advance because tickets sell fast. Loved how well kept are the trains and stations. It’s like stepping back in time. The whole ride to emerald lake was worth it. Beautiful scenery.
