Enjoy a degustation of exquisite local produce and scenic views in a relaxed atmosphere.
Your journey onboard Geelong’s restaurant train commences at one of two picturesque Railway Stations – Drysdale or Queenscliff. Please check your booking confirmation email, and it will clearly state which station you are departing from. Come early and visit Club Loco, our retro Bar Car, prior to boarding. Club Loco opens 30 minutes before boarding. It’s important to arrive early because we cannot wait if you’re late.
When it’s time to depart, our friendly staff will welcome you on board and show you to one of The Q Train’s restored Dining Cars.
Once comfortably on board, we invite you to relax whilst perusing our beverage list. The Q Train proudly only offers local, independent wines, beers and ciders from the Bellarine and across Geelong and the Otways. Is your heart set on your ‘usual’? Don’t worry, our staff are trained to recommend a locally owned and made equivalent that we bet you’ll like even better!
As the train whistle sounds your journey begins, travelling along the beautiful Bellarine Railway, offering views of the rolling hills of The Bellarine.
Your first course will be served soon after departure.
The Q Train will pause at Suma Park Historic Homestead, then runs alongside beautiful Swan Bay, with another stop to enjoy views while you dine and then continues on its journey.
Your final dessert course is served on our return trip after 3.5 hours on board. As The Q Train closes its return journey into either Queenscliff or Drysdale Railway station, enjoy a final cup of coffee or tea, perhaps with a digestif of your choice?
The waiters are keen to meet your every need; simply ask for any information regarding the train or surroundings and you can guarantee they will know the answer. We also have booklets on each table which are full of information on the train, the menu and our local suppliers.
The Q Train has a toilet in each carriage, however they cannot be used when the train is stationary. There are also toilets at every station.
