PLEASE NOTE

 

PREBOOKINGS RECOMMENDED

We strongly recommend you PRE-PURCHASE TICKETS to avoid disappointment. A limited number of tickets are available for sale from our stations on the day, however these are sold on a first-come first-served basis.

 

GROUPS AND FAMILIES:  

Please ensure you are ready to board the train 30 minutes prior to departure time. Puffing Billy is very popular and allowing extra time makes it easier to find seats for you all in the same carriage.

 

CONCESSIONS:

Concession fares are available to Australian bearers of:

  • Australian Government Health Care Card
  • Student Card
  • Seniors
  • Pensioners

Concession fares are available to New Zealand bearers of:

Concession cards must be presented when purchasing your ticket.

CHILDREN: Children are aged 4 to 16 years both inclusive. Children under 4 years of age, not occupying a seat, are carried FREE on excursion trains only, excluding special events.

PRAMS: Due to the narrow carriage doors on our heritage carriages, only folding or narrow type prams that can be placed under seats can be accommodated on Puffing Billy.

DISCOUNTS: Discounts are available for pre-booked group travel (20 or more paying passengers on a return journey) throughout the year, except on Sundays, Public Holidays and School Holidays.
