Puffing Billy Railway, Belgrave

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.

  • Am I too old to love trains? Absolutely not! What a great excursion and the lakes are beautiful. There is a picnic area, I guess now that my children are adults I was able to enjoy the atmosphere and appreciate its beauty a luxury one does not always have when you are running after children. 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.
