I would highly recommend a trip on the old Puffing Billy. We travelled from Belgrave to Emerald Lakes.
I would suggest that you get there early for the 10.30am departure as it was quite busy and the ticket office had a queue and I was jumping from one foot to the other in the hope of not missing the train.
The girls could sit on the side and dangle their feet on the outside of the train, great fun when you are going over the bridge!
We stopped off at Menzies Creek and again at Emerald until eventually we arrived at the Lakes Park. There is an outdoor swimming pool, lake with pedallo's, cafe with hot/cold food, ice cream and tea's/coffee's etc.
After we had a picnic we had a walk and saw a Kookaburra and then got back on the train for the journey back to Belgrave.
All the staff were lovely, polite and very helpful.
Puffing Billy also caters for the disabled which I noted which was fantastic.
If you love Steam Engines, you must travel on Puffing Billy.
