Experience the beauty of Melbourne's surrounding countryside in a unique new way during a ride aboard a vintage, narrow-gauge steam train: one of the world's finest preserved railways.


Depart the pier for the 1-hour drive east through the suburb of Ferntree Gully, and on to the quaint township of Belgrave. Upon arrival, you will board the Puffing Billy, a vintage, narrow gauge steam train more than 100 years old. You will then proceed for an approximate 1-hour journey through the Dandenong Mountains. Along the way, you can sit and relax on the authentic bench-style seating, and take in the picturesque scenery as your train weaves its way through the scenic countryside.


You’ll also enjoy a brief overview of Melbourne's highlights before returning to the pier.


Need to Know:

Note: Boarding the train requires some agility, as the entrance to the carriage is narrow. The steam locomotive may not be used on fire-danger days, and a diesel engine may be substituted. The Puffing Billy train is not air-conditioned but has open sides and good ventilation
