Only 40 km from Melbourne, and accessible by suburban train services, Belgrave’s main claim to tourist fame is being the home of historic steam train Puffing Billy.

Visit the National Trust-listed cottage built by Horatio Jones in 1917; or spend a delightful afternoon at Lysterfield Park Lake where you can take a walk, paddle a canoe or watch the ducks, swans and pelicans. 

Or have a picnic in Birdsland Reserve with family and friends. Monbulk Creek runs through this reserve which includes a system of lakes, wetlands, well maintained walking trails and picnic/BBQ facilities.

Perfect for that weekend escape, why not stay in Belgrave and enjoy all that it has to offer.  Visit our Dandenong Ranges Accommodation page to find accommodation that suits your need.
