Puffing Billy with Healesville Sanctuary is a wonderful full day tour to experience lush rainforest of the Blue Dandenong Ranges as you ride on the original steam locomotive we affectionately call Puffing Billy. Culinary joys today include our special Aussie style Bush Billy Tea for morning tea, a delicious spit roast lunch at a winery and sweet samples for dessert from Yarra Valley Chocolaterie and Ice Creamery.
