What to Expect
Travel reference:

Experience the grandeur and charm of a steam train journey while savouring a delicious lunch or mixed platter in our heritage dining carriages! Choose from either a three course lunch featuring local produce or graze over the signature "Natter Platter" followed by a dessert of scones, jam and cream!

Sit back and relax on board Puffing Billy's exclusive First-Class Carriage as your entrees are served. Before long you will be peeking out of the window to admire the most iconic point of the journey - the historic Monbulk Creek Trestle Bridge! 

The train ride continues through the temperate rainforest as you savour your meal. Your mouth-watering main course will be served as you journey through dense foliage and wide open fields to Lakeside Station. On your arrival, you are welcome to disembark the train and explore the picturesque Emerald Lake Park, home to leisurely walking trails, paddle boats and abundant bird life. The train will then commence its return journey while you finish off  desserts and enjoy a cuppa (choice of tea or coffee).

Reward yourself with a delicious meal while enjoying the historic Puffing Billy steam train ride – book online with us today!
