The Chook Chook Train

Puffing Billy, one of the finest preserved steam railways in the world and loved by generations for over a century.

A train ride that takes you back to ages of the steam engine that chook chook sound of the steam engine which gives the kids and adults alike the lovely feeling of a gush of wind touching your face. The ride takes you through the lush rainforest and beautiful fern gullies.

It is a perfect day outing for the entire family when it takes you back to its original 24 Km mountain track between Belgrave and Gembrook in its iconic open side carriages which lets you breathe-in the view along side its path going through the forest within the nature.

Located an hour’s drive from Melbourne within Dandenong Ranges National Park it is an outing for the ages to experience the region from any of its station, thanks to the tireless effort of nearly some 1000 volunteers.

Puffing Billy tours have some alternative tours as well which gives a dining and special events experience like murder mysteries and such when organised. Giving you the luxury of travelling first class through the chapters of time.

Enclosed dining carriages gives you the luxury to relish the luncheon provided or themed evening dining experience and more. The journey and experience is so exquisite that you keep coming back for more.


Alternatively, the dining and special events trains also add to the overall visitor experience. You can travel first-class in their luxury, fully enclosed dining carriages enjoying the daily Steam and Cuisine Luncheon, or themed evening dining experiences, including Murder on the Puffing Billy Express plus more.
