Steam & Cuisine Luncheon

We invite you to Puffing Billy for a different experience - travelling First Class!

Share the grandeur and charm of a three-hour steam train journey whilst savouring a delicious lunch in our fully enclosed, heritage dining carriages. Enjoy an all gluten-free Three Course menu or graze over our Natter Platter followed by scones, jam and cream.

Our friendly train host will welcome you on board the First-Class Carriage, where you will sit back and relax whilst perusing the beverage list.

As the train whistle signals the train's departure, your entrees are served, and before long you will be peeking out of the window to admire the most iconic point of the journey - the historic Monbulk Creek Trestle Bridge!

The journey continues through the temperate rainforest as you savour your meal.

Beneath the pressed-metal ceilings of the fully enclosed carriages, you are invited to enjoy the nostalgia of bygone days.

The Steam & Cuisine Luncheon is all about luxury and fun, whilst chugging through dense fern foliage and wide-open fields.

Next up are the mains, which are served whilst you continue your journey to Lakeside Station.

On your arrival to Lakeside Station, you are welcome to disembark the train whilst it sits at the station and explore the picturesque Emerald Lake Park, which is home to leisurely walking trails, picturesque Emerald Lake, paddle boats and abundant bird life.

The Steam & Cuisine Luncheon commences its return journey whilst you finish off with your dessert and cuppa. As the train chugs back into Belgrave station, it's time to say goodbye to fellow travellers and our train host before you start planning your next special day out!
