We’re so fortunate as winter approaches that there are so many special occasions coming up, like the Queen’s Birthday long weekend, and Christmas in July etc. And a great way to celebrate is to be out with your loved ones, without having to cook, wash up or think about driving.
And that’s where an evening on the Puffing Billy Dinner Dance Train, is perfect. You’re travelling in style, in beautifully restored 1st class train carriages, you’re toasty warm and the atmosphere is convivial. Puffing Billy takes you from Belgrave Station over the famous trestle bridge through the Dandenongs, and pulls in for you to alight at the hundred-year-old Nobelius Packing Shed, so welcoming with its blazing open fire.
And here, your entertainment for the evening is taken care of, with music, delicious food, flowing wine (if you wish) dancing (for the brave) and a gentle train ride back to Belgrave at the end of the evening. If you don’t live locally to Belgrave, Dandenongs Ranges
Tourism can recommend a selection of nearby gorgeous accommodation, to suit all styles and budget, to REALLY make a night of it.
So come on, get your diaries out, and your friends together, for an evening out on iconic Puffing Billy.
