Your experience


This trip to the beautiful Dandenong Ranges National Park is as Australian as cuddling in a kangaroo's pocket. Watch out for kookaburras, ride the steam train Puffing Billy through lush greenery and dive into lamingtons and more with a special bush tea included!

Listen to the cheerful sound of singing birds and learn more about the area as you continue. By then you will be hungry for a real Bush Tucker at the picnic site.

Watching your tour guide make your Bush Billy Tea is part of the adventure! See how it is cooked over an open flame in a billiard container, just like the Aussies have been doing for years. Get into chocolate lamingtons as well as vegemite and crackers and feed some local purple rose petals and sulphur-haired cockatoos by hand. They're gonna love you for this.

Burn these lamingtons on a short bush walk, then board the Puffing Billy steam train for a journey through breathtaking scenery. Chug your way through sweet little villages, from Belgrave to Menzies Creek. It is a picturesque, listed train ride that gives you the feeling of being in a film.

Did we mention that the views for which one must die? The skyline of Melbourne, the Silvan Dam and the rolling hills look incredible from here.
