My father (a train enthusiast), myself and my 3 kids went on the train from Queenscliff station. Chuffing along next to the bay was fantastic, the kids enjoyed looking at the water and the wildlife in the wetlands. There were places along the way to stop and get out at the station, and watch the engine change ends for the... More

This heritage train does not operate daily so make sure you check before coming here. It is less than a 20km ride from Queenscliff to Drysdale however it travels quite slowly so you really can take in the scenery. The track is the only remaining section of what once used to be a regular public railway and volunteers operate and... More

My family went on this trip which is very enjoyable and picturesque with the beautiful views. The one comment I would make is it is too slow and long for families with small children. Also I'm not sure if there is a toilet on the train. One older family member had an upset tummy and was very nervous of not... More

Situated near the roundabout to Queenscliff and Drysdale the Railway is a must do on Sundays. The train runs to Queenscliff about 50 minutes each way. Thomas the Engine is lots of fun for the Kids and there is no shortage of steam whistles. A great day out for the kids and a must do. I think they do special... More

The Bellarine Railway takes you from Queenscliff to Drysdale in historic carriages that could be pulled by either a steam engine, Thomas the Tank Engine or an old diesel engine. The tip takes just over 50 minutes each way with a 15 minute break to grab an ice cream and a drink. You'll spend the first few kilometres travelling along... More

A heritage style railway using 3'6" locomotives and rolling stock running on a re-gauged broad gauge railway. Well done

Great weekend away for the whole family. The Bellarine Region is quite large, you can find the steam train which the kids will enjoy, or go wine tasting at one of the wineries. Most beautiful vineyards to have a great meal or just stroll down a lovely sandy beach.
