Australia's century-old steam train is still running on its original mountain track from Belgrave to Gembrook in the scenic Dandenong Ranges.  Lunch will be own cost in Emerald. This afternoon we visit the Tesselaar’s Tulip Farm. They first settled in Ferntree Gully, then in 1945 moved to Silvan, which is located in Victoria's beautiful Dandenong Ranges. They purchased a small, six hectare farm and planted their first crop of Tulips and Gladioli. Check out the thousands of tulips and other flowers at the Festival. Watch some of the entertainment or perhaps even join in. We travel back to Lilydale with time to freshen up before dinner. ()

Loading the coach we make our way to Healsville and visit the Big Bouquet and learn all about production of gerberas. The flowers are currently being sent to all states of Australia either by air or road, depending on customer preferences. Establishing an export market is certainly part of the vision for the future.

Then its time to wander back to motel. (B D)
