DEPARTING 12.30 pm

Experience a journey for curious hearts on board Australia’s oldest preserved heritage steam railway as you travel through the natural theatre of the Dandenong Ranges in our traditional open-sided carriages to discover one of Puffing Billy’s finest hidden gems – the historic Nobelius Packing Shed.

 

Visitors have the opportunity to explore the Nobelius Heritage Park – a four-and-a-half-hectare heritage site that was once part of the world-famous Nobelius Nursery and started in 1886 by Swedish immigrant Carl Axel Nobelius – before boarding the return train bound for Belgrave station.

 

The Heritage Park is also home to the Emerald Museum, displaying memorabilia, photographs and documents dating from early aboriginal occupation to the present day. For opening hours, please visit the museum's website https://www.emeraldmuseum.org.au/emerald-museum.
