The tour begins in Melbourne, where we’ll take you a short drive east to the station where the Puffing Billy steam train departs. During the ride, you’ll get to enjoy the vintage sounds and whistles as the train puffs its way through stunning countryside on either side.
Don’t forget your camera, as we pass through beautiful scenery made up of rolling fields and lush forests – the perfect way to get a historic glimpse into Australia’s natural beauty.
Afterwards, we’ll head to the Blue Dandenong Ranges just outside of Melbourne. Here, you’ll have the chance to stroll through the incredible landscape, spotting vibrant native birds and other cute critters along the way. All of this is set against the impressive backdrop of jutting mountain ranges and tall mountain ash eucalyptus.
While in the area, we’ll also stop off at the pretty mountain village of Sassafras, where you can marvel at the amazing views and get to experience the mountain culture of the region.
From there, we’ll head back to Melbourne where your historic adventure comes to an end.
