A trip on Puffing Billy is the possibly closest thing to time travel that Australia can offer. As you board the heritage, turn of the century steam train and head out into the timeless, unwavering natural beauty of the Dandeonong Hills and rattle over wooden bridges, puffing steam through the ferns, the giant Eucalyptus and Stringybarks you could be in any time or era of last century and a half.

The quaint villages of Sassafras, Emerald and Olinda nestle in the bush and the arty town of Belgrave is a hive of little coffee and trinket shops. You can explore the Sherbrooke Forest, sample a sumptous Devonshire Tea and soak up a laid-back and typically, timlessly Victorian morning.

Following that a short hop south to Phillip Island whjich sits in the Bass Straight just 90 minutes from Melbourne and is a haven for all kinds of wildlife, making this a must see tourist destination, and one that you wont forget. Originally home to the Boonwurrung people, it was named for the first Governor of New South Wales; Sir Arthur Phillip.

Although this little Island is just 25 kilometres long, it is a site of international ecological importance as it is home to the world-famous, little Fairy Penguins (and their nightly parade) as well as Short-tailed Shearwaters and Pacific Gulls.
