OVERVIEW OF THE TOUR
Join us this morning as we venture through one of the most stunning rainforests in Victoria as a part of our Puffing Billy Melbourne Tour. Throughout the day, you will be treated to a variety of delicious Australian food, and taste some fine wines at Victoria’s leading wineries.
The Dandenong Ranges is our first stop on our Puffing Billy Melbourne Tour. At the Dandenong Ranges, you will travel through the lush rainforests of mountain ash trees, passing a range of steep valleys and rolling hills. There are a few arts and craft stores and cafes to explore within the area.
We head to Belgrave, where you will have the opportunity to board the famous Puffing Billy Steam Train. The steam train operates daily and follows the route of Belgrave to Menzies Creek. The steam train has been maintained in its original design and replicates the old-fashioned train network throughout Victoria. The Trestle Bridge and Sherbrook Forest, are two of the many landmarks you will cross over, on your 30-minute Puffing Billy Steam Train ride.
In the afternoon, we travel to Victoria’s primary wine-growing region, the Yarra Valley. In the Yarra Valley, travellers will be treated to wine tastings at Rochford Winery, as well as another leading local winery. Here, you will not only taste these characteristic Yarra Valley wines but, you will also gain valuable knowledge regarding the production processes.
We finish off the day with something sweet at the Yarra Valley Chocolaterie & Ice Creamery. Enjoy a private group tasting experience to sample some of the artisanal chocolates on offer and learn about the chocolate-making process.
The Puffing Steam Train and Yarra Valley Tour offers participants an unforgettable experience including spectacular mountain views, first-class wine tastings and of course the famous journey of the Puffing Billy Steam Train.
