Great little trip for the kids

Been going on it for years! It is a nice little trip along the ballerine beachside. I didn't really dislike anything. I hope they never go out of business

The kids were really looking forward to this and it lived up to expectations. Booked online and saved! Would like more time in Queenscliff between trains, only two hours (if the train is on time, which it wasn't quite) isn't enough both to feed the family and visit the town so we missed out on the Maritime Museum.

My daughter and her family gave me a present of a ride on the footplate one way from Queenscliff to Drysdale. What a top present, and how good was this ride. Steam locomotives seem to live as they hiss and rattle, and it was intriguing to see the amount of activity from both driver and fireman to maintain a steady... More

Magic way to have a function on the Blues train. Great night out for groups and great music in different carriages.

The charm of the steam locomotive and the rattle of the carriages. Great activity for a cold or rainy day at Queenscliff. Try to time your ride to spend a few hours in Drysdale as well. For that added experience pay the extra amount for a ride in the engine if you are so inclined. It was a great experience... More

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.

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
