The Bellarine Railway traverses Victoria's beautiful Bellarine Peninsula between the historic coastal town of Queenscliff and the hinterland village of Drysdale using preserved steam locomotives and historic carriages.

The railway hugs the water around scenic Swan Bay providing breathtaking views, before climbing through the rolling hills of the Bellarine Peninsula to Drysdale.

Enjoy the new Bike Hire and Park & Ride experience. Leave the car at Drysdale, travel by train to Queenscliff. Spend a pleasant afternoon exploring this historic seaside town, enjoying fine food, or simply picnicing at the beach; then return by train in the late afternoon.
Alternatively, park the car at Drysdale, then use the Bellarine Rail Trail and cycle downhill to Queenscliff, enjoy the sights of this historic seaside town then catch the train back to Drysdale. Your cycle will be safely carried in the Guards Van. A great alternative for the entire family. The Bellarine Rail Trail is one of the few cycling tracks in the world where you can cycle safely beside a steam train.
Relive the times when Steam was King, enjoy the sounds and smells of a bygone era.
Return trips from Drysdale to Queenscliff take 45 minutes each way.
The Bellarine Railway has a special Summer timetable and for the rest of the year runs daily on Sundays and Public Holidays.
Passengers’ bikes are carried free.
