Puffing Billy Railway

Yarra Valley and Dandenong Ranges

Step into a timeless world of wonder with Australia’s favourite steam train, Puffing Billy, located in the heart of the Dandenong Ranges. Thanks to the tireless efforts of our volunteers, Puffing Billy is recognised as one of the finest preserved steam railways in the world.

Ride in open-sided carriages over the rolling hills, down the valley and into the forest on the original 24km mountain track between Belgrave and Gembrook and enjoy the simplicity and beauty of the region on board our Excursion train journey.

Experience the grandeur and charm of first-class dining in Puffing Billy’s lovingly restored heritage dining carriages onboard the Steam & Cuisine Luncheon train. Indulge in a delicious seasonal three-course menu. The Steam & Cuisine Luncheon Train runs weekly every Friday and the return journey lasts approximately 3 hours.

Sit back, relax, and bask in the company of loved ones with a ride on board Australia’s oldest preserved steam railway and a delicious two-course lunch at station stop Nobelius Siding. Following lunch, visitors can explore the Nobelius Heritage Park – a four-and-a-half-hectare heritage site that was once part of the world-famous Nobelius Nursery started in 1886 by Swedish immigrant Carl Axel Nobelius.
