Easter Train

Easter Sunday on the train with four grandbabies was really a great day out. A little long for the young ones but enjoyable all the same. Did feel very sorry for the easter bunny.

Day Out with Thomas The Tank Engine and Friends. The Bellarine Railway runs this special event a couple of times a year, its such a great day. A 40 minute return train ride with one of Thomas' friends and then Thomas will take you on another ride. Sir Topham Hatt or as I remember him "The Fat Controller" is there... More

What a fabulous day out! A lovely day out, which includes a 30 minute steam train ride with Oliver or one of the other engines. Thomas pulls a little 2 carriage flat bed for mini trips up and down the line while the steam train is out and the conductors and other volunteers are amazing There is also other activities... More

We purchased this Train Driver Experience as a 30th birthday present for our son, it was certainly a present with a difference, something that could be shared and enjoyed by the participant and his guests. Particularly good for sons with sons. We had an amazing day, the staff and volunteers could not have been more helpful or informative. From the... More

“Day out with Thomas the Tank Engine” Early start from Melbourne to the Bellarine Railway in Queenscliff for the 10:30am train ride with Thomas friends.. sorry i do not know their names... but well worth it. We had our 2 grandsons with us, 22 months & 19 months. Both the boys love Thomas the Tank Engine. They both have his... More

Had a wonderful trip on the Blues Train in December. Very well organised, lovely food, excellent music. Shame about the wines - $30 for a very, very average bottle of wine..........possible $8 in the bottle shop. Not sure what happened to the icecream promoised for dessert too.....????? The organisers are very attentive to disruptive passengers - one was ejected before... More

We booked the "Santa train" for our 3 children aged 4, 8 and 18 months. I would recommend purchasing tickets to the special events early as they sell out very fast. Families were allocated a time with Santa either on the trip to Drysdale or the return trip to the Queenscliff station and it was all very well organised. We... More

I like how the old railway station in town has been restored and re-purposed to be a tourist service. If only it went all the way to Geelong and not just to Drysdale. I like the old carriages and steam locomotives, although one day I would like to ride on the diesel rail motor or the Jazz Train. At a... More

A nice old fashioned carriage sauntered through the peninsula countryside giving plenty of time to observe the wildlife, including the cyclists who over took us on a parallel track. I'm sure the mighty old steam engine in front could go a lot faster but probably not stay on the bouncy rails if it did. Great value and a good way... More
