Website Rail Trail Descriptions

In 2021 our website had over 275,000 users. Our website includes descriptions of all Australian rail trails, whether open or proposed, to gather support. Make sure your rail trail is on our website and providing the best up-to-date impression of your rail trail. There is a contact email under Further Information in each rail trail description or Contact Us for a new rail trail.

Rail Trail Community Benefits – Video and Business Cases

In 2021 Rail Trails Australia in collaboration with Bicycle NSW and Rail Trails for NSW produced a video to document the local economic benefits of rail trails. The video is freely available and can be used by you to show community members and local councils how a rail trail in your area can build local economies. You can access the video HERE or directly below.


Further to the video, RTA has started compiling examples on other rail trails of how businesses have benefited from the rail trail, in turn benefiting the local community.
