The Puffing Billy Steam Train is one of the best preserved steam railways in the world. The Pfizery Railway was opened to traffic on December 18, 1900, with a total length of 29 kilometers. This century-long narrow-gauge railway has never changed its route between mountains.
The Puffin steam train was originally designed to transport timber from the forest. It was suspended for nine years in 1953 due to a railway break caused by a landslide. In 1975, it was changed to a tourist train and became one of the most popular tourist projects in Melbourne.
When visitors experience the nostalgic train, they can sit on the window sill of the carriage and swing their hands and feet out of the window. The train will take you over the Dandenong rainforest, cross the trestle and cross the valley. It’s a different fascinating landscape that will keep you entertained.
All stations along the Puffin train have washrooms and food and beverage outlets selling simple but delicious food, drinks, a variety of souvenirs and books.
