Puffing Billy is Australia’s favourite steam train and is one of the finest preserved steam railways in the world. This century-old steam train is still running on its original 25-kilometre mountain track from Belgrave to Gembrook, through the beautiful forests and fern gullies of the Dandenong Ranges.
The open sided carriages are the best way to see the stunning views and you can even dangle your legs over the side of the carriages if you dare. You can catch the train at any of the stations along the way, or watch the train go by from one of the stations’ refreshment rooms.
For a timetable and ticketing information, check out the Puffing Billy website.
Located in Spotswood, this museum makes science fun. See Mum & Dad’s hair stand on end as they tests electricity! Stroll amongst the gigantic machines that kept Melbourne running. There is an ‘Electrifying Theatre’ in the Lightning room, and the Museum is safe for toddlers with strategic enclosed spaces for them to explore! Best of all, they have a Planetarium!!! Put your nerd hat on and take Mum and Dad during the school holidays!
Check out opening times and ticket information at the Scienceworks Museum website.
