Your journey starts at Belgrave station, the headquarters of the Railway. The station is only a short walk from Belgrave Township which has an abundance of shopping and dining options.
Setting out from Belgrave, Puffing Billy passes the southern reaches of the beautiful Sherbrooke Forest, a superb example of rainforest noted for its native 'Mountain Ash' trees, a form of eucalypt and the tallest flowering plant in the world.
Within minutes you will travel over Puffing Billy's most famous landmark - the iconic Trestle Bridge. Make sure you have your camera ready!
Your journey continues over the hill, down the valley and into the forest, with eucalyptus leaves (almost) close enough to touch!
After a leisurely 1 hour journey you will arrive at Lakeside station, situated within the picturesque Emerald Lake Park. The park is home to the beautiful Lake Treganowan, Lake Nobelius, gardens, natural bushland, as well as both native and exotic plants, with many fern gullies and open eucalypt forests.
From Lakeside, the journey continues towards Gembrook through Wright Forest, before the landscape opens up to rolling hills and farmland.
Afterwards, your journey back to Belgrave finishes off a day full of shared memories.
We have delicious lunch packs available for adults and children. These are available for pre-order with your train tickets, and can be collected at Belgrave station on your day of travel.
