Welcome, skip to the content.

Puffing Billy is one of the finest preserved steam railways in the world. This century old steam train is still running on its original 25 kilometre mountain track from Belgrave to Gembrook, through the beautiful forests and fern gullies of the Dandenong Ranges.

The open sided carriages are the best way to see the stunning views and you can even dangle your legs over the side of the carriages, if you dare. You can catch the train at any of the stations along the way, or watch the train go by from one of the stations' refreshment rooms.

Alternatively, you can travel first class in their luxury, fully enclosed dining carriages, on the daily Steam and Cuisine Luncheon , or on Dine and Dance on Puffing Billy which departs on selected Friday and Saturday evenings.

Easily accessible by fast electric train from Melbourne. Tours are offered by all major day tour operators.

Themed night trains include Murder on the Puffing Billy Express, Steam and Cuisine After Dark, Rhythm and Blues on Puffing Billy and Jazz on Puffing Billy.
