Take a step back in time on our Puffing Billy Yarra Valley Wine Tour, breathe in lush temperate rainforest enchantments and ride Australia’s premier preserved steam railway; Puffing Billy! Your relaxing journey will wind its historic way through the stunning Dandenong Ranges, only one hour east of Melbourne.

Your day can include wine and produce tasting in the exquisite Yarra Valley Wine region, explore a bushland haven for Australian Wildlife at Healesville Sanctuary or the take in the tranquil gardens of the indigenous inspired Sculpture Park, Williams Rickets Sanctuary.

What an opportunity to relax with family and friends on your own curated private tour. Let us create the right journey for you and take in the fresh air of verdant fern gullies and towering Mountain Ash trees. Delight the children in an authentic Australian experience and thrill of seeing the huge puffs of smoke bellow from Puffing Billy. Slow down and enjoy this century-old steam train that runs on its original mountain track beginning in Belgrave, right through to Gembrook in the Sherbrook Forest of the serene Dandenong Ranges. Amazing photos can be captured at the notable Monbulk Creek Trestle Bridge.

Your private tour is perfect for all the family. Our knowledgeable guides will deliver your group in our comfortable fleet to the picturesque mountain villages, walk through ancient rainforests and meander through the many delightful art and craft shops of the Dandenongs.

The culinary pleasures of the Yarra Valley await your senses, whether it be wine tasting at one of the many world-renown cellar doors or fruit picking at the passionate family-run farm; Rayners Orchard.

Take in the magnificent views of the Dandenong Ranges at the premier attraction Sky High before having the chance to see over 200 species of native animals at Healesville Sanctuary. At the Australian Wildlife Health Centre, you can talk to the carers that treat the Australian animals that are injured or orphaned. A bountiful experience is waiting to be experienced with The Private Tour guide.

Private day trip to Puffing Billy

We just recently did a private day trip with Simon to Puffing Billing Train, Healesville Sanctuary and the Yarra Valley Chocolaterie and Ice Creamery, and we had a great time. Simon is a local and very knowledgeable, and knows how to best fit in everything in a short time. We got a lot more out of it that we were even initially planning on and were able to add more things to visit in the same time period. He is very friendly and good with kids as well. Being a local, he also had many good recommendations of other things to do as well.
