Puffing Billy Tour

Nearly 120 years old this scenic railway today is busy hauling tourists over timber trestle bridges and through patches of rainforest. We travelled - with many others from Belgrave to Menzies Creek, we saw some wildlife - birds and kangaroos. Do sit on either side of the carriage during your visit - the views differ greatly.

A good day for a railway enthusiast or 'happy wanderer'.
