Experience the magic of a day at Puffing Billy Railway. This season, we invite you to meet some of the characters of the railway, have your photo taken with the driver, take in the majestic scenery of the Dandenong Ranges, feel the excitement as you cross historical timber trestle bridges, and delight in the sound of the whistle echoing through the hills.
Start your journey at Lakeside Station, located in the beautiful Emerald Lake Park, and bring a picnic to enjoy with the family. Make your way to the platform before boarding the train to Gembrook for your relaxing trip on board a historic steam train. Enjoy stunning views of the Wright Forest and rich open farmlands as you travel over four trestle bridges (including the tallest bridge on the line!) to the scenic country town of Gembrook. Kids will love spotting the farm animals and waving to every passer-by along the way.
Puffing Billy Railway is now a major tourist attraction and operates every day except Christmas Day, thanks to the tireless efforts of more than 900 dedicated volunteers.
Remember to bring your camera as you create lifelong memories onboard Australia’s favourite steam train, Puffing Billy.
