Take a Step Back in Time

Take a break from the hectic city life of Melbourne and set off on a journey down the times of yore! This experience is made all the more authentic thanks to the guards waving at you as the train departs each station, and the sound of the bells that mark the arrival and departure of trains. Adding to this charming experience is the fact that you get to see stunning landscape views around you as you travel through the Australian countryside, past rolling hills, forests, and farmlands.

Lakeside and Gembrook Station

See everything from the southern reaches of the Sherbrooke Forest (famous for its native 'Mountain Ash' trees, and the tallest flowering plant in the world!) to Puffing Billy's most famous landmark - the iconic Trestle Bridge. After an hour's journey, you will reach Lakeside Station, located at the beautiful Emerald Lake Park. Home to Lake Treganowan, Lake Nobelius, gardens, and open eucalypt forests, it is best known for its many walking trails, paddle boats, picnic tables, shelters, and two playgrounds! Upgrade your ticket to head to the Gembrook through Wright Forest. The landscape will change to rolling hills and farmland, letting you take in the quaint beauty of your surroundings. Head back to Belgrave with beautiful photographs and a ton of memories!
