Pack a picnic and bring your kids to Puffing Billy!

Puffing Billy is Australia's premier preserved steam railway and operates everyday except Christmas Day! 

Puffing Billy travels through the magnificent forests and fern gullies of the Dandenong Ranges from Belgrave, only one hour east of Melbourne.. Read more about the journey HERE.

Step back in time whilst dangling your legs over the side of the carriage - a favourite activity for kids (and adults!). Parents and grandparents relive their own childhood memories whilst introducing the next generation to this unforgettable part of Victorian history.

Couples can enjoy a different type of Puffing Billy experience by having lunch aboard the First Class dining carriages. Other special events include Day Out With Thomas and the Santa Special, as well as evening dining experiences such as Dine & Dance on Puffing Billy and Murder Mystery dinners!  

Buy your tickets online, beat the queues by starting at Lakeside, and enjoy one of Melbourne's best activities for kids! With special discounted family fares and up to six trains running daily, there’s plenty of opportunity for a family-fun day out!

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. Read on about the history of Puffing Billy.
