May 2016 – ELICOS

ELICOS Visit Puffing Billy

As part of the end of term two activities ELICOS students enjoyed a day out on Puffing Billy, Australia’s favourite steam train. The train was built in 1900 and is a Victorian icon. They travelled out to Belgrave and then took a short walk to jump aboard Puffing Billy.

The train ride took them through the magnificent Dandenong Ranges. With the lush fern gullies brushing past, and the tall mountain ash trees towering overhead, students relaxed and took rainforest selfies. They then enjoyed a lakeside BBQ before heading back to Melbourne. What a fantastic day out in the country.
