What you can expect

Escape from busy city life into a lush haven of hidden delights within the Dandenong Ranges during a ride along Australia's oldest steam railway. On this half-day trip, admire the natural forests, feed local birds and visit one of the area's idyllic craft villages.

Hop on a luxury coach and journey to the beautiful low mountains of the Dandenongs, where hidden fern gullies and sleepy villages rest amid the towering forests. Here, you can taste hot, scrumptious scones with jam and cream while leisurely sipping on homemade Devonshire tea.

Later, recapture the romance and charm of the bygone days of steam as you enjoy a ride on the Puffing Billy Railway. Marvel at the tall mountain-ash trees and see the famous Trestle Bridge over Monbulk Creek.

After a memorable ride, make your way to Sherbrooke Forest and experience hand-feeding the crimson rosella birds. Stop for some quick shopping at the quaint villages of Sassafras or Olinda before returning to Melbourne.
