A popular tourist attraction for couples and families with young children is to take a ride on the historic Puffing Billy Steam Train. This well known tourist train operates a number of services every day of the year (except Christmas Day) and provides an extremely relaxing and fun day out for people of all ages.
Puffing Billy leaves from the Belgrave train station, which is located 40kms east of the CBD and is the last station on the Belgrave line of the Metro suburban train network. From Belgrave the hundred year old Puffing Billy Stream Train winds its way through the hills and fern-filled valleys of the Dandenongs, stopping at various quaint little townships including Clematis, Emerald, Cockatoo and finally Gembrook.
The reason why Puffing Billy is so very popular with young kids is not just because you can ride along whilst sticking your arms and legs out of the open carriage windows but because you can meet Thomas the Tank Engine and the Fat Controller at the Emerald train station throughout the year (although bookings are generally essential because these events are very popular).
