The Experience

Toot Toot All Aboard!

The whistle sounds and we are on our way!

Best described as a mini music festival on a moving heritage train, this one of a kind experience departs from the seaside town of Queenscliff and will have you rocking and rolling all the way along the Bellarine Railway.

In-between showing off your best dance moves or casually grooving to the tunes, you’ll be able to take in the picturesque views of the sun setting behind Swan Bay. Plus, there’s interval stops at railway platforms along the Bellarine Peninsula for you to rest, refresh and get ready to swap carriages for a totally new artist, duo or band.

Drinks at the T-Bar

Share a drink with your best mates.

Grab your crew and head up to the T-Bar where you’ll be greeted by our friendly bar staff. The T-Bar is stocked with a wide range of local beverages that will be sure to quench your thirst. Whether you fancy an award-winning wine, craft beer, cider, or spirits, we’ve got you covered. We’ve also got cans of soft drink and bottles of water on hand for the designated drivers in your group.

Now that you’ve got a bit of pep in your step, you’re just about ready to get groovy and make some new mates.

A Great Feed

A hearty blues inspired feast.

As you arrive on the night, you’ll smell the delicious aromas of smoky BBQ Angus beef and creamy baked mustard chicken wafting down the station platform. And we’ve got delectable vegetable side dishes and salads that pair with it perfectly, including everyone’s favourite – steamy hot baked potatoes.

If you need a bit of spice in your life, then keep a lookout for our epic hot sauce tower, it’s a favourite for regular travellers!

And if you’re still hungry after your first plate, don’t be afraid to head back up for seconds, we won’t judge!

Shake rattle and roll!

You’ll see all four live acts!

We’ve handpicked Australia’s greatest, award-winning Blues performers and they’re ready to entertain and enthral you! At each of the 3 stops in the journey you’ll change carriages, so everyone on board gets to see all four amazing artists. Each carriage has a different style of artist to take you on a progressive blues journey over the night.

What if I’m not into the Blues you ask? Don’t worry! Many of your fellow travellers don’t know their blues from their oranges; all you need to know is how to have a rocking good time!

Make Friends and Have Fun!

It’s time to let loose in the Loose Caboose!

Don’t expect to be sitting in your seat all night just watching our artists, get up on your feet and show off your best dance moves. As the train chugs along, you’ll find it hard to stop yourself from swaying, swinging and shimmying along to the music. By the end of your journey, we guarantee most of you will be up and dancing with 50 of your new best mates!

Whether you come with friends, colleagues, your loved one or in a large group, you’re bound to have a night to remember on board Australia’s premier entertainment venue.
