Lockington to Kotta Rail Trail – One train whistle closer
Posted on 30/11/21
The Lockington to Kotta rail trail group has supplied this articlewhich provides great news for the further development of the Lockington – Kotta Rail Trail. Although a relatively short trail, it will enable a safe and shady route for bike riders, walkers, joggers and horse riders to travel between the two towns. The northern end of the rail trail ends at the Kotta railway station, where a large parkland of date palms (planted in 1918), large old peppercorn trees, native cypress and casuarinas provide shade and habitat for a variety of birds.
Lockington is at the southern end of the trail, and the local ice cream/waffle/coffee shop provides a very attractive and enjoyable finish to the journey. The community of Lockington deserve congratulations for negotiating a lease with VicTrack. This will enable the group to move forward in this long hoped and planned for project! Well done!
