The journey aboard Puffing Billy takes you through the magnificent Dandenong Ranges, located only one hour east of Melbourne.

With lush fern gullies brushing past and Mountain Ash trees towering overhead, Puffing Billy makes for a wonderful opportunity to relax and breathe in the fresh air whilst the train makes its way through the temperate rainforest.

Visitors from around the world enjoy travelling aboard Puffing Billy as a stand-alone experience or as part of a Melbourne day tour. If you are a Melbourne local, you can bring friends, kids, other family members or interstate visitors, pack a picnic and travel aboard this historic Melbourne attraction.

Step back in time as you enjoy this authentic experience. Parents and grandparents can relive their own childhood memories whilst introducing the next generation to this unforgettable part of Victorian history.


There are limited wheelchair spaces available. Please contact us on (03) 9757 0700 (+61 3 9757 0700 intl) during normal office hours on the weekday prior to travelling so that we can assist you in accommodating your needs.


The station platforms are not at the same height as the carriage doors, however, ramps are available to provide easy wheelchair access on many of the Excursion Trains. Please see one of the friendly volunteers on the day of travel for assistance. The wheelchair ramp width is 75cm.


There are two designated accessible car spaces at Gate 3 at the Belgrave station in Old Monbulk Road. From there, access to the station platform is via a ramp (the bottom of the “zig-zag path”). This ramp is steep. If you require further assistance getting from here to the platform, please contact us on 9757 0700 or 9757 0721.

Pathways to Belgrave, Lakeside and Gembrook stations are all wheelchair accessible.

To assist passengers with reduced mobility and to avoid the steep pathway entrance to Belgrave station, passengers may be dropped off at Gate 4 which is in front of our Belgrave station building in Old Monbulk Road. The area from the station to the platform is on one level.

Toilets with wheelchair access are located at Belgrave, Lakeside and Gembrook stations.
