Or why not make a day of it and upgrade to include a Melbourne City Tour or an evening tour to see the Penguin Parade on Phillip Island?
Ideal choice for families
Comprehensive tour by bus/coach
Enjoy a day away from the hustle and bustle of the city
Puffing billy was cool and worth the trip. The bird feeding part should not be your main concern for this trip as the bird feeding is not so large. Our guide and bus driver Dan was friendly and helpful. The tour ends at 1pm so you will have plenty time to spend for the rest of the sunshine in the afternoon. Good arranagment overall.
I enjoy this attraction with my parentsVery wonderful for us when we ride the ancient train, thru the forest and for Daendenong forest very beautifulAll arrange very well, on time schedule, they serve very well and my mom have mobility problem so they offer in front seat at the bus for my mom Will joint with another tour for next time
We loved our trip out of the city! The driver was great, he gave us so much interesting information that otherwise we would have not been able to get. The trip with the train was fun and we got to see some beautiful nature. We had few stops: at the first one the driver made us some really good tea and gave us some local treats:- at the second one, we got to visit few different shops and coffee shops. Great value!
Great morning tour. We didn't do the extra Penguin and Melb cit tour. The Puffing Billy was a trip down memory lane. Our tour guide James did a good job on commentary and making a lovely cup of tea along the way served with lamingtons. Some free time along the way to enjoy a cafe lunch at Sassafrass and wonderful little heritage town and Feeding the cockatoos was an experience at our morning tea location. I was lucky enough to also spot and witness a Lyrebird singing his various songs and Imitations. I would recommend his tour for a great morning out and returning to Federation Square Round 1pm..
Grayline trip was fun and driver, Russell, very helpful. Be wary of cockatoos at feed point in the forest. Hubby had his arms shredded by them. Puffing Billy was great. Best to sit on platform side of train towards the back to get good view of front of train as it goes round the bends. A good trip.
