Puffing Billy - Seniors Special Offer

Experience the magic of a day at Puffing Billy Railway. 

This October, we invite you to meet some of the characters of the railway, have your photo taken with the driver, take in the majestic scenery of the Dandenong Ranges, feel the excitement as you cross historical timber trestle bridges, and delight in the sound of the whistle echoing through the hills.

Why not start your journey on the lesser-known section of Puffing Billy? Start at Lakeside Station, located in the beautiful Emerald Lake Park. Arrive early and get yourself a warm drink from our Lakeside Teamrooms to enjoy as you spend some time exploring the park. Make your way to the platform before boarding the train to Gembrook for your relaxing trip on board a historic steam train.

Enjoy stunning views of the Wright forest and rich open farmlands as you travel over three trestle bridges (including the tallest bridge on the line!) to the scenic country town of Gembrook.

Arrive in Gembrook to an array of cafes and restaurants at which to eat lunch, or pack a picnic to enjoy in JAC Russell Park right next to the platform – there are even free BBQ facilities!

Remember to bring your camera as you create lifelong memories onboard Australia’s favourite steam train, Puffing Billy.

To celebrate Seniors Week, travel between Sunday 7 October and Sunday 14 October to receive 50% off your ticket.

To book, visit or call (03) 9757 0700. You can also purchase tickets on the date of travel.

Please arrive early to purchase tickets for the next available service as tickets are sold on a first-come-first-served basis. Please present your Seniors Card or Pensioner Card a time of booking.
