Puffing Billy Steam Train

A highlight of any trip to the Dandenong Ranges, just east of Melbourne, is without a doubt a ride on the famous Puffing Billy Steam Train.

At more than 100 years old, Puffing Billy is the oldest operating steam train in Australia and it still runs on its original railway tracks through the glorious rainforest of mountain ash trees in the Dandenong Ranges.

The 30 minute journey runs from Belgrave to Gembrook through forests and over old bridges. You can even catch glimpses of Port Phillip Bay. Enjoy uninterrupted views from the open carriages and breathe in the crisp mountain air and stunning rainforest scenery.
