Puffing Billy Steam Railway

Yarra Valley and Dandenong Ranges

Share an authentic journey on board Australia’s premier preserved steam railway – loved by generations for over 100 years! The steam trains travel 24 kilometres through the winding forests and fern gullies of the magnificent Dandenong Ranges, just one hour east of Melbourne. Relax and breathe in the fresh air as Puffing Billy makes its way through the temperate rainforest.

In addition to the traditional Excursion Train journey, Puffing Billy Steam Railway offers a range of First Class wine and dine experiences in beautifully restored heritage dining carriages. Select from the daily Steam & Cuisine Luncheon Train, or the Evening Dining Trains which operate on selected Fridays and Saturdays.

Puffing Billy was built to serve at the turn of the century and is a genuine relic of more leisurely days. The Railway is the major survivor of four experimental lines used to develop rural areas in the early 1900s. 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.
