Monday 23 March 2020: After careful consideration of advice from the Victorian and Commonwealth Governments, Puffing Billy Railway have made the decision to temporarily close until further notice.
Loved by generations for over 100 years, Puffing Billy is one of the finest preserved steam railways in the world. Kids and adults alike will love the feeling of the wind in their hair as they wind through the lush rainforest and beautiful fern gullies of the magnificent Dandenong Ranges National Park, enjoying the views from the iconic open-sided carriages.
Located one hour east of Melbourne, it makes for the perfect day out for the whole family. This century-old steam train is still running on its original 24-kilometre mountain track from Belgrave to Gembrook, and the convenience of catching the train at any of its stations is a great way to experience the region. Puffing Billy Railway is now a major tourist attraction and operates every day (except Christmas Day), thanks to the tireless efforts of more than 600 dedicated volunteers.
Alternatively, you can travel first-class in their fully enclosed dining carriages enjoying the daily Steam and Cuisine Luncheon, or themed evening dining, including Murder on the Puffing Billy Express.
