Victorian Trail Happenings
Posted on 05/10/02
Murray to the Mountains Opening
The official opening of the Murray to the Mountains Rail Trail took place on Friday 13 September. At Everton there was a marquee set up on the station and nearly 200 people enjoyed the perfect weather and a light “gourmet” lunch afterwards. The Victorian Minister for Transport Peter Bachelor performed the opening at the newly completed bridge over Reedy Creek.
Ballarat to Skipton Trail
Information shelters have been erected at station sites along this trail. There have been reports of problems caused by 4WD vehicles and trail bikes illegally using the trail.
Bunny Rail Trail
We have received a report that parts of this trail have been fenced off and are no longer accessible.
Logging around Federal Mill has caused the closure of the track from the Mill Site to Ada Tree Car Park. A new route will be marked. A local group is investigating extending Richards Tramway trail, linking it with Big Pats Creek. Information courtesy of VicWalk News.
