Direct from the North Pole, Santa Claus will be jingling all the way
to the end of the Puffing Billy line at Gembrook Station for the annual
Santa Special train rides this December.
The Santa Specials have been one of the railway’s most popular
events for more than 30 years, with children and adults alike getting
into the Christmas Spirit for a train ride like no other.
Children can have their faces painted, take part in a Little Elves
play and create workshop, view the Australian animal exhibition
and have their photo taken with Santa before boarding their
brightly decorated locomotive for a 60-minute return journey
through the Dandenong Ranges. Following their train ride, Santa
and his helpers will hand out gifts to all the children (from babies
up to 10-year olds).
Visitors are encouraged to make a day of it and bring a picnic lunch
to enjoy in the nearby park or grab a bite to eat at one of the local
Gembrook eateries located just a few minutes’ walk from the station.
The 2018 Santa Special adventures take place on 1 & 2, 8 & 9 December
2018 with departures at 11.00am and 1.30pm.
All-inclusive tickets are $160.00 for a family (2 adults, 2 children
aged 0-16yrs) $54.00 for adults, $44.00 concession, $41.00 for children
(aged 4-16 years) and $18.00 toddlers (aged 0-3years).
