Puffing Billy Railway (ABN: 99 299 638 143) operates within the Puffing Billy Railway Act 2022. This Act notes that the organisation operates on a Not for Profit basis, as we share our world-renowned community-based heritage rail experience.

Donations are to the Puffing Billy Railway Museum Project – defined as the entire Puffing Billy Railway Corridor and noting Puffing Billy Railway's role as a living preserved museum.  This allows us to maintain an Australian Government Deductible Gift Status, and provide you with Australia Tax Deduction for your donation.

All funds donated are retained in our Puffing Billy Railway Museum Project Reserve Fund and used solely for the “Preservation and Restoration of Puffing Billy Railway”. This fund is the only fund dedicated solely to the preservation and restoration of Puffing Billy Railway. No Funds donated are used for our corporate or operational costs.
