Description

Mainly one for those interested in history. The trail is a marked on- and off-road heritage route following a private railway that ran just one train in 1888.

The responsible body is the City of Glen Eira who have produced a very informative brochure (see links below). The council has also put quite ornate interpretive signs along the route in the footpaths.

For more information on this trail see the book Rail Trails of Victoria and South Australia.
