Murder on the Puffing Billy Express

Amongst the glamour of the Flapper Era where pearls and feathers, silk bow ties and braces are the fashion,
there has been a Murder on the Puffing Billy Express!

Great night out with friends. Got to dress up to enjoy dinner and a show on one of Victoria's iconic attractions! - Linelle, VIC

The best part was meeting new people and taking part in such a fun experience. – Ann, VIC

Dressing up in 1920's/1930's clothes to join in with the theme and seeing almost everyone else participating in this too gave the evening a special vibe.  – Karla, VIC

We encourage our Murder Mystery patrons to dress to the 1920s or 30s era. Dress up and you can go into the draw to win the Best Dressed Prize. Whilst not compulsory, it certainly adds to the experience!

If in doubt as to where to begin, we suggest you refer to shows such as Mrs Fisher's Murder Mysteries or Agatha Christie's Poirot or Miss Marple for ideas!
