Depart the wharf and travel via air-conditioned coach east to the beautiful Dandenong Ranges. First you will visit Grants on Sherbrooke to feed the rosellas and enjoy morning tea at the tea room. "Puffing Billy” winds its way for 13 kilometres over wooden trestle bridges, through fern gullies and past tall eucalyptus forests to reach Menzies Creek.
Take your camera to snap the picturesque Dandenong Ranges.
Morning tea will be provided at Grant's Reserve.
On total fire ban days, Puffing Billy will be pulled by a diesel engine. The train is not air-conditioned.
To make your day as enjoyable as possible, please ensure that you wear comfortable flat-soled shoes, clothing suited to the weather conditions, a hat, SPF30+ or higher factor sunscreen and bottled water.
