If you're looking for a great day out with family and friends or a new location for the next morning and afternoon tea social, Puffing Billy Railway is the perfect place to head to.

Whether it’s a fun activity full of imagination for the kids or a get-together with loved ones, jump inside our open-sided carriages for a steam train ride that takes you over the hills, down the valley and into the forest on Puffing Billy's original mountain track to Menzies Creek station.

Passengers can enjoy a 25-minute journey from Belgrave, passing over the historic Monbulk Creek trestle bridge and through the forests of the Dandenong Ranges, before arriving at Menzies Creek to visit the museum and enjoy their morning tea.
