New South Wales
Currently the range of rail trails in New South Wales is limited to a few short trails in the Blue Mountains and Newcastle areas. The trails in the Blue Mountains are only suitable for walking.
Several communities in country areas are pushing for the development of some quite long rail trails. However they have a challenge unique to NSW in that rails remain on many closed lines in the state, because an act of parliament is required for the line to be officially closed, thus allowing the land to be used for other purposes. It is hoped that future years will see some success for the work of these groups and development of some of these trails being approved
