Thomas and all his fun-loving friends are back for more adventures this March and April, for the highly anticipated return of a Day out With Thomas at Puffing Billy’s Gembrook station.

The whole family can enjoy a great day out with everyone’s favourite little blue engine, as it takes passengers on a 35-minute train ride departing from Gembrook’s heritage platform through to Fielder station and back.

Journey through the native 'Mountain Ash' trees and open eucalypt hillsides of Gembrook, while following the clues to complete an exciting Thomas-themed scavenger hunt.

Upon returning, the fun will continue with a range of other all-inclusive activities on offer, including:

  • Photo opportunities with Thomas himself and The Fat Controller;
  • A 20-minute Thomas Show;
  • More photo opportunities with the Troublesome Trucks and Bulgy Bus;
  • The chance to watch the engines shunting through the yards, and;
  • A digital activity pack, complete with Junior Engineer Certificate and activity sheets.

Parents can take the hassle out of their Day out With Thomas and pre-book lunch for the whole family, with their choice of a Junior Drivers Lunch, Train Drivers Lunch or the Ultimate Day out With Thomas package, which includes a Thomas the Tank Engine showbag full of goodies to play with at home!

With sessions available at 10.00am, 12.00pm and 2.00pm, join the adventure on:
