Activities in The Dandenongs
Perennially popular Puffing Billy is a restored steam train that toots its way through the Dandenongs’ picturesque hills. Kids dangle their feet out the windows and passengers pick flakes of coal dust out of their hair when they alight. There are six departures on holidays, three or four on other days, so you can hop-on/hop-off and enjoy a picnic or walk. Puffing Billy train station is a short walk from Belgrave train station on Melbourne’s suburban network.
