The South Gippsland Railway is one of Australia's longest privately managed and operated volunteer mainline passenger railways. Steam, diesel and railcar trains operate all year round over forty kilometres of rugged and historic railway through exclusive and stunning scenery.

Join the train at Leongatha, Korumburra, Loch or Nyora, all on the South Gippsland Highway, and spend as much time as you want exploring just the railway or eateries, art galleries, specialist farms and other tourism attractions in the region.

Located in south east Victoria, an area which is lush green all year, the South Gippsland Steam Railway is only 90 minutes from Melbourne and less than one hour from Wilsons Promontory, Inverloch, Cape Patterson and the world famous Penguin Parade on Phillip Island.

     Coal Creek Historical Village.

At Korumburra ( a 25 min. drive past Lang Lang along the South Gippsland Hwy), Coal Creek Historical Village attracts thousands of visitors to experience a glimpse of the past when black coal was the lifeblood of Victoria’s industry and ensured the settlement of the South Gippsland region.

The Coal Creek Historical Park village consists of a collection of around fifty buildings which are either directly relocated (and restored) or faithfully copied from the mining towns of the area c.1890-1900. It is located upon the original site of the Coal Creek Mine, the first profitable black coal mine in Victoria, and situated upon thirty acres of land, which have been replanted with native flora in an attempt to recreate the rain forest environment of the original township. Some of its features include the poppet head, the mine manager's residence, the Premier Carriage Factory, a cordial factory, a railway station, a printer's shop with olden-style typesetting, a school and church, the mine tunnel, for a glimpse of life underground, original settler's cottages, including Edward Hobsen's wattle-and-daub hut (c.1842), and horse-drawn vehicle rides.

It is open from 9.00 a.m. - 5.00 pm 7 days a week. Contact (03) 5655 1811.

     Penguin Parade.

The Penguin Parade is located on Phillip Island, Victoria, Australia, only 140 kilometres south-east of Melbourne. The area is a reserve designed to protect and promote awareness of Little Penguins.

The Phillip Island Penguin Parade is part of the newly formed (1996) Phillip Island Nature Park which includes the Phillip Island Koala Conservation Centre.

The Parade is open every day of the year. The best time to visit is at sunset, when the penguins cross Summerland Beach to return to their sand-dune burrows. After a day fishing for food in the waters surrounding Phillip Island, the penguins make their way across Summerland Beach in groups. This delightful event is commonly known as the "penguin parade". This unique "parade" can be experienced from environmentally friendly observation boardwalks and viewing stands.
