No trip to Emerald is complete without taking a ride on Puffing Billy. It’s a unique way
A bit of history
The railway was built to develop the area in the early 1900s. It provided locals with a ‘speedy’ means of transporting their goods to market and to have mail and other items delivered to the townships.
And it’s not just for the kids
Couples can enjoy a classy, mobile dining experience. Great for a special occasion, or just because. Evening dining, Murder Mystery and other trips are available each month too.
