Situated in the picturesque and verdant Dandenong Ranges, only 60 minutes from Melbourne CBD, you will find one of Victoria’s most historic and much-loved icons – Puffing Billy Railway. The spectacular lush forests and fern gullies that surround one of Australia’s oldest and best-preserved heritage steam railways, makes for a truly authentic and unique wedding setting.

Puffing Billy Weddings

The living legend that is Puffing Billy was built in 1900 to serve the local communities that lived in the hills, carrying anything from passengers to timber, livestock, potatoes and plants. Today, the railway is a century old not-for-profit steam railway that connects and enriches people with the past, the environment and each other.

Nestled along the railway corridor, discover some of Melbourne’s most exclusive wedding venues. From the newly opened Menzies Creek Museum, where you can create your own memorable experience amongst historical artifacts from the bygone era to the beautiful, rustic and intimate setting of the Nobelius Heritage Packing Shed, built in the early twentieth century and located in Emerald.
