We are a hidden gem within the Yarra Ranges, however we are easy to find and worth the adventure!

Selby Community House is set amongst a remnant forest, with towering gum trees; we are in a truly beautiful area!

Please come and visit us!  
Selby Community House loves our community.

Selby Community House Podcast!

We would love to hear any stories you might have about your experiences in the house.
They could be funny, informative or speak of a time when the house was there for you.   
We would also love to hear about the people you met at the house and the friendships that were formed.
What groups did you attend?  What did you learn at the house that has carried you forward in life?   

With your help, we can capture the spirit of Selby Community House in celebration of its 50th anniversary.

Puffing Billy Railway

Step back in time at Australia’s oldest and best-preserved heritage steam railway, Puffing Billy, situated in the picturesque Dandenong Ranges and only 60-minutes from Melbourne CBD.

With lush fern gullies brushing past the open side carriages and Mountain Ash trees towering overhead, Puffing Billy makes for a wonderful opportunity to relax and breathe in the fresh air whilst the train makes its way through the temperate rainforest.

Discover wonderful wildlife and spectacular landscapes made for adventure while sitting on the carriage sill of Puffing Billy’s open-side carriages; a truly iconic experience that cannot be found anywhere else in the world.

Located adjacent to Lakeside station sits Puffing Billy’s new state-of-the-art Lakeside Visitor Centre. Featuring a modern café with the best produce on offer in the region, a dedicated gift shop featuring locally designed treasures and a gallery of steam artifacts in the Lakeside Hall, the Visitor Centre offers guests a cultural hub with world class facilities. Open daily with free entry to passengers and visitors.
