  • Overview

    Enjoy an amazing degustation your way, pick which options suits you.

    Currently, The Q Train has five dining carriages, and two bars. Each dining carriage offers a unique experience for The Q Train’s patrons. When booking, we ask that you choose which dining option you would like.

    The first of our carriages is called the Q Class Dining Car. Seating forty-two passengers on tables of two, four or six, this carriage is our main dining ‘room’. Diners in the Q Class Dining Car will experience The Q Train’s amazing degustation, and have the opportunity to enjoy beer, wine and cider from the finest local breweries and wineries. This is the only Q class carriage to have six-seat tables, of which there are two.

    This carriage takes inspiration for its décor from the beautiful Bellarine Peninsula. The second dining carriage on The Q Train is our Q Class Bar and Dining Car. This carriage provides the same excellent level of service as the Q Class Dining Car, however it also features its own bar, displaying heritage railway artefacts.

  • What's included?


    • A unique three-hour experience on our moving restaurant journeying across the Bellarine Peninsula, on the historic Bellarine Railway
    • Varying dining vistas along the way, including a dining stop right next to Swan Bay, which is spectacular at sunset.

    • Attentive table service by dedicated professional wait staff
    • A table in either the Dining Car or Bar and Dining Car
    • The option to purchase local beverages whilst on board (we accept cash, EFTPOS, and VISA/Mastercard)

    Wow what can I say. This was our 2nd time on The Q Train and it did not disappoint. This time we did lunch for our Wedding Anniversary. From the moment we arrived on the platform we were made to feel special, from having our picture taken on the "Red Carpet", the welcome drink and the wonderful friendly service. We dined 1st Class. The menu and paired wines were explained before every course. We loved every course. We were surprised with a lovely Anniversary card from the staff, which was on our table when we sat down. This is such an unique experience that you really should do at least once, if not more. Thank you to all the staff on Saturday that made our day so special

    Had a wonderful experience here! Thank you team for making it possible. Food and drink matching were spot on. Can’t wait to come back next time to try your other menu options. Scenery and the ride was smooth making eating comfortable! Several stops along the way, we get to buy some souvenirs to keep for memories of this trip. Staff were really friendly.

    We hired the Bar car for our intimate wedding reception and it was absolutely perfect. The staff were lovely- friendly and attentive, yet gave us space to enjoy our day with our guests. And they helped us get the most beautiful photos! Management were very accommodating regarding meal requirements and arranging space for the wedding cake/dropping the cake off prior to the big day- great communication. The food was exquisite- it was a tough call, but I think the arancini balls were the overall winner with our party! Was great to be able to get out for a wander at different stations. And that view over Swan Bay... Thank you for a day to remember from my new husband and I and all of our guests.

    What a fantastic journey! The experience is excellent; clap to the chef and big shout-out to Georgia for her exceptional service, the food is extraordinary, as you can see in the pics, and the wine-food matching option is a MUST. If you are heading to the Bellarine area, give it a try! Enjoy it, mates :)

    We celebrated our anniversary by booking the q train. We were advised when booking and in all correspondence that the train didn’t wait for late arrivals and your seat would be forfeited however as some passengers were running late we didn’t depart for 30 mins after the starting time and this meant all other stops were cut short to make up for time. Very disappointing as it meant we had less time to enjoy in Portalington and other places and we felt rushed to eat. The customer service on board was great which helped make up for this. Food is delicious however be prepared for small portions if you normally eat larger meals. Drink options are wonderful and first class carriage comfortable. We would have rated this higher if we didn’t have the issues with waiting for others and having our time cut short.
