With lush fern gullies brushing past the open side carriages and Mountain Ash trees towering overhead, Puffing Billy makes for a wonderful opportunity to relax and breathe in the fresh air whilst the train makes its way through the temperate rainforest.

Discover wonderful wildlife and spectacular landscapes made for adventure while sitting on the carriage sill of Puffing Billy’s open-side carriages; a truly iconic experience that cannot be found anywhere else in the world.

Located adjacent to Lakeside station sits Puffing Billy’s new state-of-the-art Lakeside Visitor Centre.

Our Memorial Reserve

Visitors are welcome to stroll along our wide tracks leading to our serene reserve sanctuary nestled amidst the heart of our rear paddocks. Created to honour the horses that have blessed Avoca Park over the decades.

This enchanting retreat boasts ornate windmills and inviting benches, providing an idyllic and tranquil vantage point to appreciate the peaceful scenery. Whether one wishes to relish in quiet contemplation, immerse oneself in a captivating book, or indulge in the pursuit of avian observation, with kookaburras, rosellas, fairy wrens, and rainbow lorikeets frequenting the area, this small reserve promises a serene and aesthetically pleasing experience.

While exploring the property, we hope you will take the opportunity to acquaint yourself with our wonderful companions, including our magnificent horses, loyal dogs, affectionate cats, and our beloved pair of donkeys, Johnny Simpson and Cuddles. This picturesque stroll is accompanied by the harmonious symphony of chirping birds and the occasional heartfelt bray from our endearing donkey duo.

Meet & Greet The Donkeys

Come and meet our donkey, Johnny Simpson and miniature donkey, Cuddles. 

Get up close, give them cuddles and pats- you can even take them for a walk around the reserve if you wish.
