The Bellarine Railway

The Bellarine Railway is a Not-For-Profit organisation offering steam train rides, Train Driver Experiences, charters, as well as family events and specials such as Day Out With Thomas weekends, Halloween and Santa Trains. The railway has been maintained by dedicated volunteers since 1979 and features a unique collection of heritage locomotives and carriages from around Australia. New volunteers are always welcome.

Heritage Train Service

Take a scenic journey from Queenscliff to Drysdale or Lakers Siding, traveling alongside Swan Bay and through remnant bush.

Trains depart from Queenscliff and Drysdale stations, on most Sundays throughout the year, as well as Tuesday and Thursday in the Easter, July and September school holidays. During the summer holidays, extra train running days will be scheduled.

Family specials are also held during the school holidays.

Private carriage hire is ideal for birthdays and groups of 20+ - bookings are essential.

Cycle or walk beside an operating railway from Drysdale to Queenscliff and return onboard our carriages. Bikes are carried free and group bookings are advised.

Train Driver Experiences

Do you know someone or do you have a long held dream of driving a locomotive? Driver Experiences are offered throughout the year and are guaranteed to leave the ‘driver’ with a memory to last a lifetime!
