    Train & lunch / Picnic / Snack Pack | 10% DISCOUNT.

    Take in the magic of steam train travel from the moment you arrive, with the sight of the historic locomotives being prepared for departure, the smell of steam billowing out of the vessel’s chimney and the evocative sound of the train’s whistle.

    Before long, Puffing Billy’s friendly conductors will help you jump on board the open side carriages for a serene ride over the hills, across the iconic timber trestle bridges, down the valley and into the forest on the original mountain track between Belgrave and Lakeside.
