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


About your journey

This station is the headquarters of the Railway and only a short walk from Belgrave Township which has an abundance of shopping and dining options. Belgrave Station is also accessible by Metro Trains from the city centre.

Setting out from Belgrave, Puffing Billy passes the southern reaches of the beautiful Sherbrooke Forest, a superb example of rainforest noted for its native 'Mountain Ash' trees, a form of eucalypt and the tallest flowering plant in the world.

Within minutes, passengers will experience travelling over Puffing Billy's most famous landmark - the iconic Monbulk Creek trestle bridge.

Something to consider

You will be travelling on board a century old steam train that uses coal to fuel the fire and get the locomotive moving!

This coal turns into soot and smut and occasionally when sitting in our open carriages can travel through the air and land on your lap or sometimes in your eyes.

We want you to enjoy a scenic ride through the magnificent Dandenong Ranges, so please consider this part of the experience before embarking on your journey.

To best avoid the soot and marvel at Puffing Billy’s steam, passengers can:

  • Bring along a pair of sunglasses or, if preferred, goggles
  • Bring along a hat
