Rail Trails of Victoria

Rail trails are shared-use paths on abandoned railway corridors. They can be used for a range of purposes including walking, cycling and horse riding. Rail trails link big and small country towns and meander through scenic countryside just as railways did in the past.

Apart from being great places to walk, cycle or horse ride, rail trails are linear conservation corridors protecting native plants and animals. They often link remnant vegetation in farming areas and contain valuable flora and fauna habitat. Wineries and other attractions are near many trails as well as B&B's and other great places to stay.

Visit Rail Trails of Australia for information on rail trail locations, gradients and where to purchase the Rail Trail Guide Book.
