Head east from Melbourne with the majestic Dandenong ranges in your view, where you are going to spend half the day exploring this natural paradise on a Puffing Billy Heritage steam train tour. You will travel in a luxury air-conditioned coach with large tinted windows, offering great views along the journey, so you won’t miss a thing!
Just a short journey from Melbourne, you will arrive at Dandenong. In no time, you’ll be strolling through the lush rainforests, amidst waterfalls and rolling hills.
At the heart of the Dandenong Mountains is Grants on Sherbrooke, an idyllic café that serves fresh cups of Devonshire tea in china cups. The tea is complemented with freshly baked scones served with jam and cream on the side. Relax in the pleasant surroundings and sip on a hot cup of tea, basking in the lap of nature.
The rainforest is a haven for bird life with bird songs wafting in every direction. You can try hand-feeding birds, and pose with some, perched on your shoulders or arms.
Head to Belgrave, where you board the famous Puffing Billy Steam Train ride that runs through the heart of the rainforest. You get to enjoy the scenery from a different perspective on this 30-minute steam train ride to Menzie Creek. Get a steamy blast from the past aboard this centuries-old locomotive, and also see how this relic of the past is maintained and kept operational.
After the high of the steam train journey and disembarking at Menzies Creek, you will make your way to Sassafras, a charming village surrounded by the rainforest. Explore the little village and go souvenir hunting to take back some handmade relics.
