Steam & Cuisine Luncheon

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.

Puffing Billy invites you to board our newly refurbished dining carriages as you immerse yourself in a three-hour steam train journey through the Dandenong Ranges.

Our carriages are fully equipped with heating during the cooler months, perfect for an afternoon filled with good food and local wine.

Date of travel subject to availability.
One complimentary glass of house wine per person.
Only valid on Steam & Cuisine Luncheon, Friday 1 June - Sunday 30 September 2018.
Only valid Monday - Friday, excluding weekends.
Not available in conjunction with any other offer.
Not available for Gift Vouchers.

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!

The Steam and Cuisine Luncheon departs from Puffing Billy's Belgrave station daily (excluding Victorian public holidays) at 12.30pm. It is a three-hour experience, with 45 minutes to spend at Emerald Lake Park before returning back to Belgrave at approx. 3.30pm.

Bookings are essential.

Kindly arrive no later than 12.00pm to allow time to park and make your way to the platform.

There is no air-conditioning in our carriages (we use natural air-conditioning - windows!) However, the carriages are equipped with heating during the cooler months.

If booking for the next day, please note bookings are only available until 4.00pm the business day before travel and are subject to availability. The fare includes the train journey, meal, tea, coffee and dinner chocolates. A range of beverages including local wines are available for purchase.

A child fare is aged from 5-16 years inclusive. Whilst we welcome children in our heritage dining carriages, we can only accommodate children aged 5 years and above. As a result, babies, toddlers and young ones under five years of age, cannot travel in our dining carriages. These age restrictions have been carefully considered in the interests of health and safety.

Concession Fares are available to Australian bearers of:

Australian Government Health Care Card,
Australian Student Card,
Seniors Card,
Companion Card

Concession Fares are available to New Zealand bearers of SuperGold cards.

Your signature may be required on the day of travel for verification purposes. (Excludes evening dining & events).

Passengers with Special Needs (eg wheelchair access) must contact Puffing Billy's Customer Service Centre on (03) 9757 0700 rather than book online. This way we can determine whether your needs can be accommodated.

Dining Carriage - Due to the heritage nature of our dining carriages, the table configurations can seat up to two (2) or up to four (4) people. If your party consists of more than 4 people, we will do our best to ensure your tables are located close to each other.

Carriage Seat Dimensions - Our heritage dining carriages have tables and chairs that are fixed to the floor and cannot be moved. As a result, people of generous proportions could find seating in the dining carriages restrictive. Please note that the distance between the edge of the table and the back of the chair is only 41 centimetres. To ensure you have a positive experience at Puffing Billy Railway we strongly urge you to contact our Customer Service Centre should you have any concerns.
