Daily Departure Timetable
Our excursion trains run daily from Belgrave to Gembrook. Enjoy a scenic ride through the lush rainforests of the Dandenong Ranges. You can choose to begin your journey at Belgrave travelling to Lakeside or all the way to Gembrook, or explore the lesser-known part of Puffing Billy and start your journey at Lakeside Station (located in Emerald Lake Park).
All departure trains are bookable from the website.
Daily Return Timetable
All tickets booked online are for an Open Return. Open Return tickets mean that when returning back to Belgrave or Lakeside, you have the option of travelling on any of our timetabled trains on the same day. Keep in mind that on busy days, a number of people may want to catch the same return train as you, so please ensure you are at the station platform at least 30 minutes prior to the train departure time.

We strongly recommend you PRE-PURCHASE tickets to avoid disappointment.
We allocate a certain number of tickets for each train to online bookings, and these can be purchased up until 8 am on the day of travel (subject to availability). After this time, or when the capacity allocated to online bookings for a certain train has been reached (whichever occurs first), our online bookings will be listed as sold out.
