  • Many National and State Parks to explore. There are good views from lookouts and mountaintops (including the Main Range of Kosciuszko National Park) and plenty of picnic and camping areas

Trail Guide

The High Country Rail Trail will be eventually 112 km long, in three distinct sections:

  • The 6 km high standard urban Wodonga to Bandiana section
  • The 37 km good standard rural section around Lake Hume to Tallangatta and Old Tallangatta
  • The 37 km section to Shelley is for the more adventurous, but well worth it

Albury/Wodonga is a major regional centre with all services while Tallangatta has some services. There are no services beyond Tallangatta.

Section Guides

Access Points

  • Wodonga: many access points; parking on side roads
  • Bandiana: car park at Whytes Rd
  • All other stations sites from here have carparks
  • Old Tallangatta: no parking at trailhead itself – park at Mitta Bridge rest areas or in Old Tallangatta across causeway
  • Shelley – Take Avondale Rd off Murray Valley Hwy at Shelley, past the Shelley accommodation camp

Albury/Wodonga to Bandiana (6 km)

  • From Albury station follow the old Hume Hwy 5 km toward Wodonga across the Murray River floodplain to High St and the former Wodonga railway station precinct, which is well worth a visit
  • From the Wodonga station precinct travel 200 m east along Reid St to the start of the rail trail
  • From here to Bandiana is a very smooth asphalt surface
  • Military and history interpretive signs toward the Bandiana Military Museum provide an insight into the role the region and Australia has played in conflict and peacekeeping
  • Many other interpretive signs, so many excuses to stop and read. Kangaroos are common near the military facilities

Albury and Wodonga are major regional cities with all facilities. There is a hotel and takeaway near Bandiana.

Bandiana to Huon (17 km)

  • A bitumen surface to Ebden, then a wide, smooth gravel surface to Huon
  • The army has taken over some of the former line and the very long trestle bridges across the Kiewa river flats have been demolished, so a diversion with boardwalk and low level bridges has been built across the Kiewa River flats.
  • There is a steep gradient at Whytes Rd
  • Make use of the picnic tables at Kiewa River to enjoy the scenery
  • After crossing Kiewa River, the trail joins the original rail alignment; leaving the river red gum forest the trail rises slowly to Mahers Rd with the first views of Lake Hume
  • From Mahers Rd the trail passes beneath Murray Valley Hwy then heads south with the Mitta Arm of Lake Hume to one side, hills on the other and mountains in the distance. There are many locations for a refreshing dip on a hot day, especially when the water level is high
  • The trail descends to Huon where the platform, goods shed, weighbridge and some rolling stock remain. If water levels are very low, the remains of the original station site can be recognised further down the hill
  • This trail features sites rich in cultural history such as Bonegilla station site
  • At Bonegilla, a diversion to the large dam wall is worthwhile. Follow Bonegilla Rd north; along the way visit Block 19, the Bonegilla Migrant Experience Heritage Park

Huon to Tallangatta (12 km)

  • From Huon to the 600 m Sandy Creek bridge with its distinctive ‘red sticks’.
  • From Sandy Creek to Tallangatta the trail surface has one side sealed and the other smooth gravel

Tallangatta is a small regional town with some food and accommodation, including a bakery and choices for coffee.

Tallangatta to Old Tallangatta (8 km)

  • The trail is sealed all the way from Tallangatta to the Mitta bridge, an impressive structure
  • At Old Tallangatta, turn left at the over-bridge and follow the road for 1 km to see the few remaining buildings of the township; if the weir level is low take a stroll around the building foundations
  • There is an interpretive sign at a viewing point up on the highway
  • No facilities at Old Tallangatta

Old Tallangatta to Shelley (37 km)

  • This section is for the more adventurous, but has many rewards
  • No drinking water or toilet after Tallangatta
  • From Old Tallangatta to Bullioh the trail is basically flat and a little rough as it winds up the valley
  • A stone step crossing of Tallangatta Creek requires a diversion on to Murray Valley Hwy in wet weather
  • A short on-road diversion at Bullioh around the station area
  • From Bullioh the trail climbs almost continuously for 28 km at the maximum gradient trains could manage. Cyclists should consider starting at Shelley unless they are quite fit or on a fully charged e-bike
  • There are many reasons to stop with wonderful views between Bullioh and Derbyshire and three tall timber bridges, including the highest in Victoria
  • After Derbyshire the trail enters forest and follows a creek
  • A 1 km diversion on to the highway to get around the 76 m long Boggy Creek bridge near Koetong (viewing platform)
  • Boggy Creek bridge can be reached by car; from Wodonga, turn left off Murray Valley Hwy before Koetong on the Mt Lawson road that leads to Mt Lawson State Park
  • From Koetong, after a short descent to Koetong Creek, it is a steady but picturesque climb to Shelley
  • Many large timber bridges in this section, some of which have been restored by voluntary community participation; others have a diversion around them
  • Enjoy a break in the forest at Shelley station, at 781 m Victoria’s highest station site
  • The only facilities are at the Shelley Forest Camp (booking required)
  • Other places to visit include the summit of Mt Lawson and its loop nature trail, Conic Range Walking Track, a 1.5 km walk off Firebrace Rd, great views of the Koetong Creek Valley, and Avondale Gardens Reserve. Follow the signs from Shelley off Avondale Rd

Beetoomba (9 km)

Part of the future section to Cudgewa and Corryong is accessible, but it is only for keen walkers and mountain bike riders as the surface is rough and there are low-level crossings around the four bridges in this section.

Background Information

Traditional Owners

We acknowledge the Waveroo and Jaitmatang people, the traditional custodians of the land and waterways on which the rail trail is built.

Development and future of the rail trail 

Many developments are under way and planned to improve this trail.

Parklands Albury/Wodonga, in conjunction with three local voluntary advisory groups, is working on improving the Old Tallangatta to Shelley section and opening the Shelley to Cudgewa section.

When the rail bypass of Wodonga opened, Rail Trails Australia supported local organisations to extend the trail from Bandiana into Wodonga; this is now complete to a high standard, providing an important backbone for the local off-road path system and preserving an important piece of history. Rail Trails Australia supports extending the rail trail across the Murray floodplains toward Albury.

Development of the trail began in 1996. Highlights of its development include

  • opening of the 600 m Sandy Creek bridge in 2012 to link Bandiana and Tallangatta
  • opening in 2019 of the fifth volunteer-restored bridge at Dry Forest Creek at Bullioh to link Tallangatta with Shelley

Railway History

Construction of the branch line began in 1887 and reached Tallangatta (now Old Tallangatta) in 1891. Cudgewa was not reached until 1921 due to the difficult terrain and labour shortages. According to legend, Corryong and Tintaldra were arguing over which should get the railway but the era of the motor car arrived before the argument could be settled, leaving the small township of Cudgewa as the terminus.

Construction of Hume Dam required the line between Ludlows and the present Tallangatta to be shifted up the hill in the early 1930s. In the 1950s the level of the dam was raised requiring further track deviations, the lifting of the Sandy Creek bridge and the shifting of the entire town of Tallangatta.

During the 1960s the railway carried construction materials for the Snowy Mountains Scheme as well as regular cattle and general goods trains. Construction also sped road improvements in the area, increasing competition for the railway. The last regular goods train ran in 1978 and the line officially closed in 1981.

Observing the remains of Bonegilla station platform, with only a few farmhouses in sight, it is hard to believe the part this area played in the lives of so many Australians. During World War II a major military training camp was established at Bonegilla, and following the war until 1971 the location was a reception centre for more than 320,000 migrants; you can listen to their stories in the excellent visitor centre at Block 19 (off Bonegilla Rd on the way to the dam wall). Remarkably, despite this number of people arriving in Bonegilla a station building was never built, let alone a siding. Now the former station’s small claim to fame is its native grassland reserve.

Also at Bandiana South is a large military museum that provides a vivid reminder of what was until recent times a very large military presence in the area.

Wodonga’s and Bandiana’s large railway facilities are now largely gone.

We recently drove down to Victoria from Dubbo in NSW to ride on some of the rail trails down there. We wanted to take part in the Tall Trestle Treadle on 13th October, and so we booked in to a motel at Wodonga for three nights. On the first day we explored some of the great cycle paths in and around Wodonga and Albury around the Murray River. We had ridden the High Country Rail Trail a few years ago, but there has been some wonderful improvements since then. On our second day we rode from Wodonga to Tallangatta and return. The smooth hot mix surface out to Bandiana is soo good, and most of the trail to Tallangatta is also now sealed. It was great to see some green grass and water in the paddocks after the dry brown landscape in the Central West of NSW. We enjoyed a great lunch at the popular bakery at Tallangatta before our return trip to Wodonga.
On Sunday we had to drive up to Tallangatta to get our shuttle to Shelley for the start of the Tall Trestle Treadle. There was approx.110 people signed up for this ride, so we had two busses and numerous bike trailers. The drive to Shelley is mostly uphill, so we were looking forward to the downhill ride, and it did not disappoint as we rode through magnificent native forests with wonderful rural views. Morning tea at Koetong station site was delicious,, before we again set off for more downhill to Dry Forest Creek Trestle for lunch. This section offers superb views of some of the old historic trestle bridges, as we detour past them. The scenery on this trail is so much better than any other trail we have ridden on. We took part in the official opening of the fully restored Dry Forest Creek Trestle, and after an excellent lunch, rode on to Old Tallangatta, before once again hitting a 10km sealed section of trail back to Tallangatta. The organisers had provided afternoon tea at the old goods shed in Tallangatta for all the finishers. Well done to the organisers of the TTT, it was very enjoyable, thank you.
This trail is now 85km long, and is highly recommended to anyone wanting to experience some great scenery and easy riding.

18/27. Yesterday morning I rode the hauntingly beautiful High Country railtrail. I started at Old Tallangatta with the early morning sun breaking through the mist hugging the surrounding green hills. The dead sentinels from the flooded, but now exposed, Lake Hume showed me the way. A quick coffee break at the only opportunity to do so on the whole track at the Tallangatta bakery, and then on with it towards Wodonga.
After hugging the lake’s coastline for the next 20kms, the trail turned towards Wodonga. All was good until I came across a section where a tributary of the Keiwa River had flooded the path. I rode through it alright, but somehow picked up a puncture in the process. Luckily I knew I was only about 1km from the end and the sag wagon wasn’t far away, so I walked out to Whyte’s Rd.

18 trails now completed, only 9 to go for my 2019 challenge is to ride every rail trail in Victoria this calendar year to promote organ donation. You can follow my rail trail exploits on FB Warwick Duncan – The 2nd Chance Man or Insta @warwick_rides.

My wife and I rode the HCRT from Wodonga to Tallangatta and return today. You can actually start your ride at the corner of Osburn St and Havelock St, right in the heart of the city. This section of trail is now brand new smooth hot mix surface and continues all the way out to Whytes Road. Work is continuing to pave the surface from Whytes road up to the flood plain of the Kiewa River. It will then continue out the other side to Ebden. The trail is in great condition with the only slightly rough section between Gulliver’s Lane and Ebden (the section that is going to be resurfaced)
The new bridge over the Sandy Creek inlet is a real highlight of this ride, a credit to all involved. Once we arrived at Tallangatta we decided to have a coffee and cake, and found a new bakery that was doing a roaring trade, Coffee and cake were delicious, and so we returned back to Wodonga. The old railway precinct in Wodonga is well worth a look. Plenty of cafes and old photos done as murals on some new buildings that look like train carriages. This is now one of the best rail trails in Victoria.

We recently stayed for 4 days at Wodonga and rode our hybrid bikes from Ludlows Reserve to Tallangatta for lunch. Highlights of the Trail are the well set out reserves with facilities, most old station sites with historical information signs, the small Memorial garden near the Huon Reserve, the constant spectacular views of the Hume Dam and the magnificent Sandy Creek bridge. The trail was good to ride on, starting with fine gravel and then bitumen from the Sandy Creek bridge to Tallangatta. An added attraction at this time was the blossom and wattle trees. The next day we drove to the historic trestle bridge over the Boggy Creek (not restored as yet),then had lunch at the very old Koetong pub, then walked over the newly restored Koetong trestle bridge and then drove up to the Shelley station site – again with historical signs. We marvel at what the men did over 100 years ago – surveyed, cleared, built bridges and stations and the track itself. We consider ourselves very fortunate to be able to again explore & enjoy the fruits of their labour! We finished our day by driving to Corryong for fuel, then to Cudgewa to see where the line ended. We thank all concerned for what has been done on this Rail Trail and we’ll be back soon to ride more of it.

In November 2015 I rode from Wadonga to Old Tallangatta, camping at Tallangatta Caravan park which is extremely pleasant. The Bakery is excellent! I stayed there 2 nights and on the second day I rode to Old Tallangatta and then for about 10 kms on the road around the other side of the lake and back, which was about the high point of the trip, lovely road, magnificent scenery, very few cars and just the odd steep hill. I then rode to Yackandanah with view to connecting with the Beechworth – Wangaratta Trail which I had done some years ago but for various reasons had to pull out at Yack. Another time perhaps. Hopefully the Beechworth to Yackandandah section of the trail will get up one day.

I found the Wadonga – Old Tallangatta Trail excellent and it will be even better when the low bridges at the start of the trail and towards Bonegillla are completed which will cure the problems of wet weather mentioned by some riders. The section after Huon was being upgraded and that will be a further improvement. What can I say about the Sandy Creek bridge.. extraordinary and saves 6kms of road riding! I think Tallangatta would be a good base for side trips to Mitta Mitta and also perhaps a circumnavigation of the lake, which I intend to look into. I too look forward to seeing the trail extended to Coryong, what a great addition that would be.

I saw no snakes but I’m sure they were there somewhere…….

As I have previously commented regarding other Vic Trails, as a NSW rider I am so impressed by the Victorian attitude, light years in advance of NSW where bike riders are regarded as dangerous greenie terrorists who should be driving large 4x4s. Congratulations Victoria!!

Just rode the Huon to Old Tallangatta section in both directions yesterday – 20 June 2015. All I can say is simply stunning. It was a beautiful crisp winter day, the hills were green and the sunlight soft. The trail surface along this section is fantastic and the Sandy Creek bridge is quite a sight stretching across the inlet. Stopped for lunch in Tallangatta on the return and had a pie at MJ’s Bakery – The food was great.

Rode from Shelley to Koetong on 13 March 2015. The trail was in good condition, and the Shelley station site is well-maintained and an ideal spot for a pre-ride picnic – just follow Avondale Road up the hill. Only encountered one locked gate on the trail. No snakes but did see a few wallabies. There are 3 good trestle bridges on this section. Also rode on the main trail from Old Tallangatta to Bandiana the same day. It is definitely a bit rough around Huon but really no problem for hybrid or trail bikes. There is spectacular scenery at a number of points along the trail, and Tallangatta has all amenities.

I rode this trail on Sunday 14th December 2014 between Wodonga and Old Tallangatta. Pretty awesome trail – good views and easy riding. The Sandy Creek Bridge is the stand out, as well as the old ruins at Old Tallangatta. The trail surface is fine; though agree that the section between Huon Reserve and Ludlows could do with some work. A few snakes around – especially in the grass by the side of the trail, but they get out the way quickly. Hope they extend it soon.

Completed Wodonga to Tallangatta in April. What an enjoyable ride with spectacular scenery. Will be back to do it again. Looking forward to the completion to Corryong and some improvement of the track surface after the impressive Sandy Creek bridge.

I rode this trail from Wodonga to Old Tallangatta and back over 2 days in Oct 2013. Trail was in good condition, saw NO snakes (even in the area where there is a warning about them). The Sandy Creek Bridge was a great feature and was one reason I waited to do it when I did – so I didn’t have to ride on the highway. No obstances on the whole trail, but grass about 30cm tall in places in middle of trail, and some places had large-ish gravel. Throughly enjoyed the trail.

We rode Koetong to Shelley and return today – spectacular country and can’t wait for the whole route to be completed from Old Tallangatta to Corryong. Koetong Pub is a top little country pub to visit and also have accommodation. Recommend start/finish at the pub and access the track via Edgars Rd rather than the old station site as the trestle over Boggy Ck is being restored and exceptionally difficult to wade across the creek with a bike! Locked gates at Edgar Rd and Billborough Rd make it difficult to traverse this section but worth it to see more old trestle bridges deep in the beautiful forest. Surface a bit rough overall and would recommend MTBs for preference although our hybrids handled the route without too much trouble. Well done to all those who have worked to get this trail opened up.

Have just ridden Tallangatta – Bonegilla return. Didn’t think the section between Huon Reserve and Ludlows was too bad – our hybrid bikes managed it just fine. A great ride all round and would certainly encourage others to do it. The Sandy Ck bridge is magnificent. Would also recommed the side trip to see the Migrant Heritage Centre at Bonegilla. Turn off the Rail Trail at Mahers Rd – about 2km down this road on the way to the dam wall. Only complaint of the day was the state of the public toilets at Huon Reserve.

My husband and I rode from Tallangatta to Bonegilla and return on Monday 15 April. A perfect day for a rail trail ride!
We were amazed by the new bridge at Sandy Creek – it is quite remarkable! And the new section of the rail trail, from Tallangatta to the bridge, is excellent.
However, a 5.3 km section of the trail, between Huon and Ludlow’s Reserves, is a bike riders’ nightmare. The rough, often sharp and irregular shaped 15-25mm rocks (not gravel) used to surface this section of the the trail made our traverse – riding hybrid bikes – an extremely uncomfortable experience.
We hope the relevant authority acts quickly to fix this very poor section of an otherwise excellent rail trail.

Hey, after coming up to ride the trail for the past three years finally rode from Wodonga to Old Tallangatta and back without having to deviate on to the road because of flooded rivers and poor track surface. The bridge is brilliant and the track surface between Houn reserve and Old Tallangatta is great. A little work cleaning up the large gravel between Bonegilla and Houn would make the trail fantastic for all types of bikes (not road) and riders. Recommend doing the trail before the rains come and the Kiewa river floods the trail near Whytes road. Also recommend the Tallangatta bakery for lunch, snack or coffee.

A couple of weeks ago my wife and I rode departed Wodonga late afternoon and rode out to Tallangatta and stayed the night before returning the next morning. Very enjoyable missing the heat of the day and heaps of colourful birds all the way out in the evening. There are still a few kilometres between Bonegilla and Huon that are a little uncomfortable on hybrid bikes. Huon to Tallangatta is great especially riding across the bridge with the water level up so high.
Tallangatta Motel was good value for money. Tallangatta Hotel didn’t leave the same feeling but bakery was better in the morning.

I rode the trail two days ago, and would agree with the comments left by spokes. I spent most of my time watching the trail surface rather than enjoying the scenery. Bridge works at Sandy Creek are incomplete. I talked to a workman at the bridge, and he thought that it would be at least a month before the works would be completed.
I travelled from Tallangatta towards Wodonga. From Bonegilla to Whytes Road there were a number of places where there was water damage, and two areas where the choice was between turning around or proceeding through water. I chose to proceed. The worst effected section had a lake across the track stretching for about 50 metres of track and as far as the eye could see into surrounding bushland. I walked my bike through water that came almost up to my knees. Travelling from Tallangatta, I saw no signs advising of water ahead.
The vibration from the rough surface caused me to lose the sensor on my trip computer.
I have immensely enjoyed watching the gradual development of the rail trail network over the last decade or so, and I have been an enthusiastic trail user. I went to the official opening of the Goulburn HIgh Country Rail Trail, and gained some insight into the enormous amount of effort required to develop the trail. Consequently, I am reluctant to sink the boot into the High Country Trail. However, I think that the surface overall is deplorable at the present time. The best section is probably from Tallangatta to the Sandy Creek Bridge. The track beyond is certainly not suitable for a family outing, wide tyres only, and be prepared to detour or swim from Bonegilla.

Agree with spokes comment on trail. I however attempted it most days for 2 months but the track gets really rough once past huon reserve . The track between whytes rd and bonegilla is a just a draw of chance.. Every time it rains the water constantly floods on the flats and takes away the top soil – it has been re- fixed numerous of times but same goes when it rains again which really is sucks for users of trail. In saying that I still cant wait for new bridge to open but wish the large stones between ludlows reserve up be moved

Rode the trail last week from Albury to Tallangatta and return. The trail is a disgrace and would recommend to all to give it a big miss. Between Whytes road and Bonegilla the trail is impassable because of water across the trail, so turn around, back on to the highway and re- enter the trail near Bonegilla. The trail then between Bonegilla and Ebden reserve is not to bad. Then from Ebden to Huon the trail just degrades.Then just after Huon the quartz gravel used on the trail is so large, fist size, that you spend the whole ride watching the ground instead of the scenery. There is no way you could take a family with children. So back on the busy highway for the 6 klm ride around sandy creek, no verge at all in places. Back on the trail and not to bad to Tallangatta but needs work. So the new bridge might open in June but the whole trail will need a heap of work to bring it to a standard that meets the description. Sorry to sound like a grouch, but when you travel some distance to get to the trail to ride it, it is some what disappointing
