The Puffing Billy Railway located just an hour from Melbourne, is a train which has first class dining and takes you through the Dandenong Ranges travelling between Belgrave and Gembrook. This is one of the great attractions which I have previously visited. It is a lovely idea if you are looking to have a relaxing day with family or for backpackers who have come to Melbourne to travel for a while. People often visit while they are on holiday, however locals often come here with friends or family. This is great mainly for a family activity as kids will enjoy it along with adults who will enjoy getting an insight into the history of Melbourne. There are also children’s events in place and dining for those who stay in the evening. Easiest way to get there is by car as it is quite a long journey via public transport. Just a heads up - the only pets allowed are guide dogs and must have a leash on.
