The team of volunteers behind Puffing Billy have been busy curating a spotless museum filled with engines and train history at the new Menzies Creek Museum. Visitors can hop off Puffing Billy at the Menzies Creek train station to access the museum – or you can park nearby.

More than 10 years of building, collecting and researching Railway items from a bygone era has gone into the Menzies Creek Museum’s 1160 square metres. The museum houses over 80 exhibits, including rare operational steam and diesel locomotives, carriages and a rail tractor, as well as an operational boiler house that services steam engines, fluid pumps and 500 brake horsepower generators.


The museum can be taken as a self-guided experience or on request, enjoyed with one of our volunteer tour guides*.

*Guided tours available upon request, subject to availability (fees may apply).

Enjoy the onsite children’s play area and Little Toot Café with plenty of hot and cold beverages and sweet and savoury food items to enjoy.

But best of all, enjoy the excuse to take a ride on Puffing Billy!
