The new historic Museum covers a space of 1160 square metres and houses over 80 exhibits, including rare operational steam and diesel locomotives, carriages and a rail tractor. Adding to the atmosphere, the Museum also features an operational boiler house that services steam engines, fluid pumps and 500 brake horsepower generators.
If you're looking for a great day out with family and friends or a new location for the next morning and afternoon tea social, Puffing Billy Railway is the perfect place to head to. Passengers can enjoy a 30-minute journey from Belgrave, passing over the historic Monbulk Creek trestle bridge and through the forests of the Dandenong Ranges, before arriving at Menzies Creek to visit the museum and enjoy their morning tea, including scones, jam and cream with a hot beverage. A themed children’s play area and the Little Toot Café provide space to sit down, relax and await the 30-minute train journey back to Belgrave.
Open to the public from December 19.
