Trail Potential

This proposed rail trail runs along the disused Yass Tramway corridor, between Yass Junction railway station and Yass Town in southern New South Wales, a distance of 4.5km.

Yass Valley Council has been provided with funding of $220,000 from the NSW Government’s Active Transport program in the 2022/23 financial year. The funds will be used for Phase 1 of the project, to plan and design the rail trail as part of a local active transport project.

The rail trail route includes a heritage listed steel bridge built in 1892 across the Yass River, and the route ends at the Yass Railway Museum (also heritage listed) near the centre of Yass.

 

Last updated: 25 October 2022

When constructed, the rail trail will run from Yass Junction railway station on the main southern line, through woodland down to Yass Town, crossing the Yass River before running the length of Dutton Street in Yass and ending at the Yass Railway Museum.

The rail trail route has one highway crossing at the Yass Valley Way to the north-west of town.
