About the tour
The Puffing Billy Steam Train Tour is an absolute “must do” in the Dandenong Ranges as one of Melbourne’s longest running experiences. The railway line takes us on a journey into lush mountains abundant with wildlife, rainforest areas, and quaint mountain townships.
You will have plenty of time to relax and stroll along the historic streets of village towns such as Sassafras and Olinda, as well as visit scenic look outs and viewing spots perfect for capturing a memorable photograph or two.
Your Puffing Billy tour commences with the Puffy Billy steam train tour, winding through the beautiful forests of the Mount Dandenong Ranges.
Other highlights of this region include the William Ricketts Sanctuary, a mystical sculpture display set in the the middle of the rainforest. The sculptures depict the philosophies of the Aboriginal Australians and the tales of early English settlement in Australia.
End your spectacular day visiting a large scenic parkland/lookout to spot wild kangaroos!
