WE ARE
THE BELLARINE
Showcasing seasonal local produce
Welcome aboard The Q Train.
The Q Train is an award winning restaurant that travels along the historic Bellarine Railway between Drysdale and Queenscliff.
Australia’s PREMIER
RAIL RESTAURANT
Showcasing Local Food, Wine, Beer and Cider

Never before has Australia seen a heritage rail line used for showcasing local food, wine, beer and cider. We’re inviting locals and visitors alike to come aboard our restored carriages and enjoy a gastronomical journey unlike anything else you have experienced. In 2019, Australian MasterChef were wowed by the experience and hosted a team challenge episode on board The Q Train!

We are serving local produce on every journey from the comfort of our refurbished dining cars; providing every customer with a delicious rail journey, and unique views of Swan Bay and the Bellarine.

Wine and dine in style with The Q Train.

LET'S TALK ABOUT FOOD
What is a degustation menu?

The Q Train serves our seasonal multi-course degustation. A degustation is great way for restaurants to take their guests on a culinary journey. (A metaphorical journey – not all restaurants are on wheels!) With a number of smaller courses, guests can try many different flavours and combinations that, while being quite different from each other, all tie together as well. Sometimes degustations are called “tasting menus” or “chefs selections” or “feed me menus”.

SAIL, RAIL AND DINE
Catch the ferry from either Docklands or Sorrento

With ferries arriving into both Portarlington and Queenscliff, The Q Train will organise transport from the ferry terminals to the train station, so diners can just relax.

Diners will then experience The Q Train’s amazing degustation, featuring local Bellarine produce, in The Q Train’s refurbished carriages. The train will travel a return journey towards Queenscliff or Drysdale with views of Swan Bay and local scenery.

After lunch, you’ll be transported back to the ferry where you can sail to Docklands or Sorrento whilst dreaming of your wonderful meal and your next visit.
