$99 'iconic’ Puffing Billy

Escape the CBD with a full-day tour of the Dandenong Ranges and Phillip Island. Melbourne’s Best Day Tours is offering 53 per cent off this all day tour including transport, Devonshire tea and a ride on the Puffing Billy steam train.

Usually worth $210 per adult and $105 per child, tickets are reduced to $99 per adult and $55 per child. With the opportunity to feed crimson rosellas and see penguins waddle up Summerland Beach, you’ll also see scenic highlights such as Westernport Bay, Sherbroke Forest and the Dandenong Ranges.

With pick up and drop off in central Melbourne at Federation Square, there’s no need to worry about parking, simply jump on the train, tram or bus into the city. Previous reviews call the guides ‘passionate’ and ‘knowledgeable’, while praising the company’s use of small buses rather than big coaches for a more intimate experience.
