Lilydale Falls to Wyena is now part of the North East Tasmania Rail Trail
Posted on 27/02/23
The Launceston Council recently approved another section of the Scottsdale to Lilydale rail trail, part of the North East Tasmania Rail Trail. This utilises some of the now abandoned rail line which once ran from Launceston to Ledgerwood to the east of Scottsdale.
The envisaged rail trail/ walking track may eventually be up to 80km in length and run through some of the area’s most beautiful countryside. The latest approval, which extends from Wyena to Lilydale Falls, is to include a tunnel and carpark at Lilydale Falls that will add to the existing 28km rail trail at Scottsdale.
Dorset Council and Launceston have been working hard to get this exciting project going for some time and have seen the community benefits such a project can bring to a district.
