  Amazing all ages day trip serving up adventure, nostalgia and wildlife!

The whole family will love the magical experience of an unforgettable journey through the lush rainforest of the Dandenong Ranges on board the legendary Puffing Billy steam train. Behold the breathtaking vistas and breathe in the fresh, crisp air, taking in the beauty of the historic locomotive as it chugs along on its hour-long expedition from Belgrave to Lakeside. And if that’s not enough, after the ride, wander through a wildlife sanctuary where you can encounter some of Australia’s most beloved creatures face-to-face, including koalas, kangaroos, and soaring birds of prey.

This adventure will transport you out of the hustle and bustle of city life and into
the serene magic of the Dandenong Ranges and Yarra Valley’s natural wonders.

  3. Accessibility: Whilst the fleet is of modern, comfortable vehicles (ranging from 13 to 21 seats) these are not modified to be wheelchair accessible. There are a number of steps leading to the main cabin which you will need to be able to manage these unassisted. For safety reasons we are only able to store fully collapsible wheelchairs on board. Please advise if you are bringing a collapsible wheelchair along, as we would need to book an additional seat and ensure we have the correct equipment with us on the day to secure it, so it does not pose a safety issue for you or any of your fellow passengers. Not all attractions visited on tour are wheelchair accessible. Please contact our customer service team prior to booking so we can assist you.
