Step back in time for a ride on Australia’s oldest steam train Puffing Billy. This journey will take you through the breathtaking Sherbrooke Forest & Dandenong Ranges, surrounded by lush rainforest, fern gullies, giant Mountain Ash trees and hidden railway tracks of the hills. Childhood dreams relived, as you dangle your arms and legs out of custom designed open colonial train carriage as we make our way through the mountains. Enjoy a traditional Devonshire tea with homemade scones, served warm with jam and cream whilst you listen to the colourful sounds of lyrebirds, crimson rosellas, cockatoos and kookaburra. Home to much more native Australian wildlife, so be sure to keep your camera ready.
