Cy­cle a top rail trail

North East Tourist News - - MILAWA & DISTRICT -

VIC­TO­RIA is home to some of the most iconic rail trails in the coun­try, and one of the best is “The Mur­ray to Moun­tain Rail Trail”.

This rail trail is the per­fect way to dis­cover the di­verse land­scape of North East Vic­to­ria.

It tra­verses through bush­land and open farm­land to re­veal hid­den val­leys and some of Aus­tralia’s most spec­tac­u­lar moun­tain ranges.

The 100 kilo­me­tre (62 mile) long trail starts in Wan­garatta and con­nects coun­try vil­lages such as Mi­lawa, Beechworth, Ruther­glen, Bright, Myrtle­ford and Wandiligong.

Sealed, off-road and mostly flat, the track me­an­ders along­side clear rivers, vine­yards, hops, or­chards and groves.

It has quickly be­come a favourite with fam­i­lies and is suit­able for novice riders as well as those with more ex­pe­ri­ence.

Stops at cel­lar doors and farm gates will re­ward vis­i­tors with lunch at a win­ery or a pic­nic of fresh pro­duce.
