Begin your day with us.
Head out to the Dandenong Ranges from Melbourne on board Puffing Billy, Australias most loved steam train at Australia's oldest steam railway, Puffing Billy dates back to 1900. It recreates the romance of those bygone days of traveling under the power of steam.
The full afternoon train ride takes you along the Dandenong Ranges National Park, which consists mostly of rolling hills, steeply weathered valleys, and gullies covered in thick temperate rainforest. See swathes of tall Mountain Ash, and dense ferny undergrowth.
Sit back and watch the beautiful scenery roll by. As you head back to Melbourne, you will stop at Sassafras or Olinda, one of the quaint little craft villages in the area.
Capture the magic of the old saying "The Romance of the Rail." As you chug along, you will get the chance to feed the native crimson rosella parrots, enjoy Devonshire afternoon tea, and take in the beautiful scenery of the Victoria countryside.
