Sometimes it requires innovative ideas to achieve your objective - and this is certainly true of the currrent extension of the Great Southern Rail Trail (GSRT) in Victoria’s South Gippsland region.

Recently the Friends of the Bendigo Kilmore Rail Trail installed 'whistle post' style sign posts at road crossings along Victoria's O'Keefe Rail Trail, between Axedale and Heathcote.

On Monday 26 July, Wagga Wagga City Council (in NSW) will vote on a motion to give in-principle support for the development of rail trails in the Wagga Wagga Local Government Area. A successful vote will pave the way for a funding application to build the vital and long-awaited Wagga Wagga to Ladysmith Rail Trail, part of the Riverina Highlands Rail Trail.

Following a $6m grant from the Victorian Government to the Wellington and South Gippsland Shire Councils, the Great Southern Rail Trail in Victoria's Gippsland region will become a continuous off-road track from Nyora to Yarram.

The State Government has announced that a bridge for cyclists and pedestrians will be constructed over the Goodwood Railway Station on the Mike Turtur Bikeway at a cost of $28m.

A Castlemaine-Maryborough rail trail has taken one small step closer to its planning stage with a decision by the Mt Alexander Shire Council (MASC) last month to fund a small scoping study.

More good news from NSW with funding for construction of NSW's third major rail trail. Federal MP Hon. David Littleproud and NSW MP Hon. John Barilaro recently announced that up to $8,721,095 will be provided to revitalise the Great Northern Rail Line between Armidale and the Queensland border which has not had trains on it for 31 years.

To revitalise this asset and generate economic growth through increased tourism, Glen Innes Severn Council will build Stage 1 (35.5km) of the New England Rail Trail between Glen Innes and Ben Lomond.

We thank all our members and other followers for being such passionate supporters of our Rail Trails Australia community. Your enthusiasm and frequent compliments keep us focussed on our mission to improve Australia's rail trails.

Despite our ongoing efforts, Rail Trails Australia gets NO government support and we rely on and appreciate greatly the donations from supporters.

The Richmond Valley Council received notice from the NSW state government to move the to Phase 2 (detailed design and construction) of the Casino to Bentley section (Stage 2) of the Northern Rivers Rail Trail.

Wonderful news with the Tweed Shire Council approving construction on the first section of the Northern Rivers Rail Trail, NSW's second rail trail on a government rail corridor.
