Kids liked the train ride. Got to see things that we would never normally see while in the car. Good value for money and well worth the trip down to Queenscliff for the day.
Steam engines with faces are a big hit with the kids, and the train ride relaxing for parents. Plus bouncy castle slide/ double decker bus ride/ certificates. Not the cheapest day out but the railway's run by keen volunteers, so support all their hard work.
The only place to hire bikes is at the Big4 caravan park. We found out about this package and thought it looked good value (57 dollars pp). This package is great and includes all day bike hire, one way trip on the Bellarine rail and a picnic. We picked up the bikes at 10 am from Big4 in Queenscliff, rode... More
Fabulous scenery on the trip from Queenscliff to drysdale and you can take great photos from the train.
Our grandchildren love taking a ride on the steam train. There is always great anticipation and enjoyment. They also love to look around at the old engines and to sit and watch the train being loaded with coal or wood and water and getting up steam for the journey. The children have also been on 'Thomas' when he is in... More
What a great place, well maintained and operated by a team of enthusiasts. Views of swan Bay as you choofl past, plenty of wildlife to observe as well as such a lovely destination as Queenscliff.

Did the driver experience thing.. for all frustrated engine drivers this is the go.. A full day with tank engine Pozieres and men who truly love the era of steam. Gritty and sooty with the smell of hot oil and burning coal. Ticked off my bucket list.. but I think I might revisit it again before the cheap chipboard lid... More
A blast from the pass when the engine whistle is pulled it send sthe memories going .. for the kiddies it is a reall experience ...congrates to the volunteers they do a marvellous job
Wonderful old train but it also shows you parts of the peninsular you would not do by car. Enjoyed the views of the bird life at Swan Bay and the slow leisurely trip through the countryside. Fascinating watching the local kids waving to all of us on board - good to see them getting so much enjoyment.
