Explore the Dandenong Ranges from a different perspective, on board the famous Puffing Billy Steam Train! Your first stop on your half day adventure is the Dandenong Ranges, a lush green rainforest, just 35km from Melbourne CBD. Nestled in the heart of the Dandenong Mountains is a cosy cafe, where you will enjoy a traditional Devonshire Tea of homemade scones, served warm with jam and cream, and tea served in china tea cups, while being charmed by the surrounding mountains, ferns and forest, crisp clear air and sounds of birds singing. After you have finished your Tea, you can hand-feed the beautifully coloured Crimson Rosella birds with some provided seed.

Your next stop and the highlight of the trip is the famous Puffing Billy Steam Train. This century-old steam train is maintained in its original glory, and runs to this day on its own mountain track. Here you’ll go back in time as you get on board for a 30 minute ride through the heart of the rainforest. You’ll see the locomotive depot that services and maintains the train, head through the gorgeous Sherbrooke Forest and ride over the old Trestle Bridge. Just before Menzies Creek you can see stunning views of Port Phillip Bay.

Before you head back to Melbourne, visit the quaint little town of Sassafras renowned for beautiful antiques and local crafts, and enjoy some free time to wander and explore this pretty township.
