All aboard! The much loved Bellarine Railway is set to return services between Queenscliff and Lakers Siding on Sunday, December 6 and 13.

Geelong Steam Preservation Society president Steve Dalton is delighted to have the railway back in action, after being shut down since March during the COVID-19 pandemic.

“We will be relaunching from Queenscliff station with three return trips around picturesque Swan Bay departing at 11am, 12.15pm and 2pm,” he said.

“It has been many months since the clickety-clack sound of the railway in operation has been heard, so we urge people to pre-book to their seat.

“Passenger numbers are limited on each trip, as we work within the state government’s COVID-19 safety guidelines.”

The Bellarine Railway’s dedicated volunteers have been working hard behind the scenes and now eagerly await the return of passengers of all ages.

Additional dates to be announced soon.
