3 Reasons Why the Blues Train is the Perfect Gift Idea for a Milestone Birthday

What do you get the person celebrating a milestone birthday and seems to have it all?

How about an experience that will give them memories to last a lifetime? 

Milestone birthdays, especially ones like your 40th, 50th and 60th, are the perfect opportunity to get together with your mates, have a legendary night out and create new, lasting memories.

And The Blues Train delivers that in bucket loads. 

Whatever your style of gift giving, we’ve got you covered. Buy a gift card and let them choose when to ride or organise a night out with the birthday boy/girl and party the night away with your nearest and dearest friends.

Here are three reasons The Blues Train is the perfect gift idea for a milestone birthday.

Dinner and Show, on a Steam Train, Memories That Will Last a Lifetime

As far as experiences go, you won’t find many more as outstanding as what The Legendary Blues Train offers.

Your experience onboard Australia’s unique music experience includes everything you need for a memorable night out. Here’s what we’ve got in store for you:

The Journey 

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 along the Bellarine Railway.

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. We’ve got you covered whether you fancy an award-winning wine, craft beer, cider, or spirits. 

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. 

Amazing Live Blues & Roots Entertainers

You’ll see all four live acts! We’ve handpicked Australia’s greatest, award-winning Blues & Roots performers, and they’re ready to entertain and enthral you! You’ll change carriages at each of the 3 stops in the journey, so everyone on board gets to see all four amazing artists.

Shake, Rattle & Roll 

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. By the end of your journey, we guarantee most of you will be up and dancing with 50 of your new best mates!

Doesn’t that sound like an epic gift idea for even the trickiest to buy for? 

Give them the choice of when to travel and buy them a Blues Train gift card. It’s the perfect gift for a milestone birthday. 

Make a Weekend of It in the Beautiful Bellarine

Extend your experience and plan a weekend away to complement your night out of fun on The Blues Train. The Bellarine Peninsula is chock full of things to do and places to hang your hat for the perfect short-break escape.

Where to Hang Your Hat

Take that extra day (or two!) and enjoy a long weekend in the beautiful coastal town of Queenscliff, and uncover some of the hidden gems of The Bellarine.

Our historic town has great accommodation options available to suit any budget. Check out our Stay page for a range of options in the region.

Play All Weekend Long

From award-winning wineries and restaurants to unique provedores and fun activities, there’s so much to do in the Bellarine Peninsula. Come and play with the locals and make the most out of your visit.

Play, taste, browse, relax, shop or jump – Geelong and The Bellarine has you covered. Check out our Play page for all the fun stuff to do in the region.

Plan an Epic Party for the Ultimate Night Out

If you’re up for organising a one-of-a-kind party, then look no further. We think the best birthday bashes are ones that bring the people, places, mates and faces together into one legendary night out.

It’s all about getting your group of mates on the train and having the best night ever. 

Seeing their smiling faces as you sing and dance the night away and, let’s be honest, music really is the soundtrack to our life, is the ultimate night out.

Over the last 25+ years, we’ve hosted some epic birthday parties. From small groups of close friends celebrating a loved one to full-carriage festival celebrations, they’ve had one thing in common. 

Everyone has a rollicking good time shaking, rattling and rolling through the carriages.
