Cycle a top rail trail
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.
