Puffing Billy is one of the finest preserved steam railways in the world and operates thanks to the tireless efforts of their volunteers.
Please note that Puffing Billy is temporary closed until further notice, after careful consideration of advice from the Victorian and Commonwealth Governments in light of COVID-19.
The excitement begins from the moment you arrive at the station with the sight of the historic locomotives, the smell of the steam and the sound of the train’s whistle.
The Railway was built in 1900 to serve the local communities that lived in the hills, carrying anything from passengers to timber, livestock, potatoes and plants.
Today, Puffing Billy Railway is a major tourist attraction and incites visitors to come and experience a century old tradition. Ride in the open sides carriages as the historic steam trains continue to run on their original mountain track between Belgrave and Gembrook, in the natural surrounds of the magnificent Dandenong Ranges.
