About Rail Trails Australia

Rail Trails Australia is a predominately volunteer, not-for-profit, organisation which works for the development and promotion of a rail trail network Australia-wide.

Our website provides free comprehensive up-to-date descriptions of all rail trails in Australia, which promote the concept of rail trails and facilitate their use.

Rail Trails Australia receives no government funding and relies on sales from products and donations from supporters to carry out our work.

Rail Trails Australia is part of an international movement to develop and promote rail trails. Similar groups operate in other coutnries including the USA, Canada and the United Kingdom that are:

  • engaging the community in supporting trail development
  • advocacy to all levels of government
  • expanding and marketing the network
  • supporting committees of management
  • sponsoring conferences and workshops to enhance skills and assist new rail trail development
  • developing technical documents to assist groups setting up and maintaing rail trails

We publish Rail Trail Connections magazine for members and rail trail organisations.

We publish a guidebook for rail trails in Victoria and are looking at new guidebooks for other states.

For further details refer to 2020-2022 Strategy.
