On the Belgrave side of Menzies Creek, this location provides excellent views of trains rounding the curve in both directions.
Views of trains in both directions
Puffing Billy's Belgrave station and yard
One of the most photographed locations in Victoria, the Monbulk Creek trestle bridge carries Puffing Billy from out of Belgrave and towards Menzies Creek. There is limited car park beneath the bridge for those wishing to stop and take photos. It is best suited for trains heading towards Menzies Creek.
Former station on the narrow gauge railway line between Upper Ferntree Gully and Gembrook. The station site has been restored by Puffing Billy Railway but trains do not stop at Selby. Suitable photography for Lakside or Gembrook-bound trains.
Good views from the siding of trains in both directions.
On the Gembrook side of Emerald station, good views are afforded of trains leaving Emerald for Gembrook.
Has a great location though trains to Sydney can be difficult to photograph if the sun is out as it is prone to shine into the lens of the camera. Otherwise great location and food readily available nearby at the takeaway.
Terminus of the North Coast line and departure point for tourist services up the Kuranda Range and further west on the Etheridge line to Forsayth
Located between the cairns railway station and the Yards on the bend.
