The Q Train
Dining on board The Q Train is a unique culinary experience.
A restaurant on board a train, departing from the historic Drysdale Train Station, and travelling along the picturesque Bellarine Railway.
Showcasing food, wine, beer and cider from the local regions.
Australia's PREMIER RAIL RESTAURANT
SHOWCASING LOCAL FOOD, WINE, BEER & CIDER
The Q Train is a restaurant that travels along the historic Bellarine Railway between Drysdale and Queenscliff.
The train usually departs from, and returns to, Drysdale Station, just an easy 15-minute drive from Geelong. However, during the first week of the month, as well as every second Thursday, The Q Train usually departs from and returns to Queenscliff station. Please check the timetable page before booking accommodation to choose a time and departure station that suits you.
Never before has Australia seen a heritage rail line used for showcasing local food, wine, beer and cider. We're inviting locals and visitors alike to come aboard our restored carriages and enjoy a gastronomical journey unlike anything else you have experienced.
We are serving local produce on every journey from the comfort of our refurbished dining cars; providing every customer with a delicious rail journey, and unique views of Swan Bay and the Bellarine.
Wine and dine in style with The Q Train.
*The Q Train clearly displays departure stations and times on our timetable page. Please check your confirmation email carefully for departure times and stations, as refunds cannot be given if you miss the train. Call us on 0474 968 309 if you have questions.
BEHIND GEELONG'S DINING TRAIN
A couple of years ago, two blokes who'd worked with trains for the better part of 50 years purchased several historic carriages from Queensland Rail. They sought the expertise of a hospitality pundit, and then our team was born. We've spent the last year or so refurbishing the old carriages, and have transformed a part of the old 'Sunlander' into a new boutique rail restaurant called 'The Q Train'. How's that for recycling?!
If you live around the Bellarine area, you may have seen us working on restoring the carriages over the last 12 months.
As long term homeowners on the Bellarine Peninsula, we have dreamed of creating a Restaurant Train to showcase the beautiful Bellarine and Swan Bay scenery, whilst offering premium local food and beverages. The Q Train is the realisation of this and we are proud to share this vision with Geelong, The Bellarine and beyond!
