  • Puffing Billy Railway light’s up the night

    May 31, 2022

    One of Victoria’s most popular and iconic tourist attractions, Puffing Billy Railway,  will be lighting up the night in an Australian first Train of Lights experience this winter.

    From Friday 24 June – Sunday 10 July 2022, the Train of Lights will take passengers on a return journey that departs from Lakeside to Gembrook, immersing guests in bright colours, hypnotic patterns, and native wild animal projections that leap onto the passing dark Wright Forest, historic timber trestle bridges, and open rolling hills of the Gembrook countryside.

    What better way to inspire your team than by experiencing Puffing Billy Railway’s must-see event this winter.

    With the journey beginning at Lakeside, your team will have the chance to explore the new Lakeside Visitor Centre and all its state-of-the-art amenities. Experience the rich history of the century-old heritage steam railway through a collection of steam-era artefacts and an immersive multimedia experience.

    Either make a day of it and host an offsite team meeting or enjoy some fun activities in the area. Make sure you allow for enough to enjoy a meal together at the Centre’s Railway which features seasonal produce from the Yarra Valley and the Dandenong Ranges, prior to boarding the illuminated train.

    Once arriving at Gembrook Station, connect with your team during a 55-minute stopover, where you can warm up by the open fire with a winter warmer. Don’t and capture a quintessential team selfie of the lit-up train station.

    Tickets are now on sale and numbers are limited so start planning your next team incentive experience.
