All aboard, Melbourne adventurers! It's time to chuck those city sneakers for a pair of explorers and dive into the heart of nostalgia with a trip on Puffing Billy – Australia’s most iconic heritage steam railway.

All Aboard the Puffing Billy Railway!

Puffing Billy Railway
Ride the Puffing Billy Railway through the lush Dandenong Ranges.

Nestled in the lush, storybook settings of the Dandenong Ranges and just a 60-minute escape from the hustle and bustle of Melbourne CBD, this is your ticket to stepping back in time.

Feel the rush of fresh air and the gentle brush of fern gullies against your skin as you dangle your legs out of Puffing Billy’s charming open-side carriages. Look up and get lost in the natural skyscrapers – the towering Mountain Ash trees – as you chug through the breathtaking temperate rainforest. It’s not just a train ride; it’s a doorway to a bygone era where you can unplug, unwind, and inhale the pure magic of nature.

But hey, it’s not just about the journey. The adventure continues off the rails too! Right next to Lakeside station, step into the future while holding onto the past at Puffing Billy’s new Lakeside Visitor Centre. This isn’t your average pit-stop; we’re talking a modern cafe brimming with the finest local produce, a gift shop that’s like a treasure trove of locally designed gems, and a steam artifact gallery that’s sure to ignite the historian in you. And the cherry on top? Entry is FREE for all, whether you're riding the rails or just soaking up the vibes.

So, whether you're a history enthusiast, a nature lover, or just in need of a breath of fresh air, Puffing Billy promises an experience that’s as unique as it is unforgettable. Ready to trade the concrete jungle for a journey through time in the great outdoors? Puffing Billy is calling your name!
