Puffing Billy Railway
Australia's century-old steam train is still running every day except Christmas Day on its original mountain track from Belgrave to Gembrook in the scenic Dandenong Ranges, just 40 km east of Melbourne, Victoria.
The Railway is the sole survivor of four experimental lines used to develop rural areas in the early 1900's. Puffing Billy is now a major tourist attraction, its operation depending on hundreds of dedicated volunteers.
Bring your family or friends along on a sentimental journey along this 24.5 km operating museum. Enjoy the mountain scenery and panoramic views which pass by your carriage window. At Lakeside, the intermediate terminus of the railway is inside the beautiful Emerald Lake Park, you may stop over for a picnic, a pleasant walk around the lake or just relaxing in the peaceful country setting.
All Puffing Billy trips depart and return from Belgrave in the Dandenong Ranges, only 40 km from Melbourne, Victoria. However, a round trip may be commenced at any Puffing Billy station if the timetable permits. Individual tickets can be purchased on the day of travel at any Puffing Billy station.
