After careful consideration of advice from the Victorian and Commonwealth Governments, Puffing Billy Railway have made the decision to temporarily close until further notice.

With the effects of the coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak being felt more each day, our primary concern is for the safety and wellbeing of visitors, volunteers, employees and the community at large.

In these uncertain times, we must all help ease the spread of this virus and look out for those most vulnerable.

We will work with Victorian Government and public health officials to assess when it is safe to reopen the Railway and will communicate this via our website and social media channels.

Our customer service team will be in contact with those who have pre-purchased tickets. If you have any other enquiries, please contact us at

As we continue to closely monitor updates provided by the relevant authorities, we urge you to stay up-to-date by visiting

We thank our extraordinary team for their unwavering spirit during this difficult period and share our gratitude to the public for their support and patience.

Puffing Billy is committed to providing support for our employees during this time.

Please take care during this time and we look forward to welcoming you back again soon.
