Walk Cycle Ride Australia's former railways.
Rail trails are shared-use paths recycled from abandoned railway corridors. They can be used for walking, cycling and horse riding.
Where are they?
There are now rail trails all around Australia and in other countries too. Rail trails link big and small country towns and meander through scenic countryside just as railways did in the past.
What are they like?
Most trails have a gravel or dirt surface suitable for walking, mountain bikes and horses. Some are sealed and are great for touring bikes too.
Melbourne Metropolitan Trails
There are many railtrails in the Melbourne Region, most of which occupy most of the disused railways in suburban Melbourne but some are more wide spread.
The Bellarine and Mornington Peninsulas currently host one each and there are many old timber tramways in the old logging regions of the Yarra Valley east of Melbourne.
