Puffing Billy Railway

The journey aboard Puffing Billy takes you through the magnificent Dandenong Ranges, located only one hour east of Melbourne.

With lush fern gullies brushing past and Mountain Ash trees towering overhead, Puffing Billy makes for a wonderful opportunity to relax and breathe in the fresh air whilst the train makes its way through the temperate rainforest.

Train Ride, Museum & Morning Tea

Get up close and personal with railway relics from a bygone era at the Menzies Creek Museum, before gathering to enjoy some morning tea and a good catch up in the sunshine.

Train & Lunch at the Packing Shed

We invite you on a dining experience that mixes local fresh food with the striking beauty of the Dandenong Ranges at one of Puffing Billy’s finest hidden gems – the historic Nobelius Packing Shed.

Sit back, relax, and bask in the company of friends with a ride onboard 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.
