Friends of the Bendigo-Kilmore Rail Trail

The Friends of the Bendigo-Kilmore Rail Trail Inc. (A0054089L) is a community group of people who all recognise the fabulous potential of a long distance trail on or near the route of the former Wandong, Heathcote, Sandhurst Railway. We love rail trails and long-distance trails, and members have travelled many of them within Australia and in other countries.

The Friends group acts as a specialist trail advisory body to local  councils, assists in a number of ways for the current O’Keefe Rail Trail extension project, advocates for the creation of a Wallan to Heathcote Rail Trail, cares about community health  and wellbeing, encouraging more people to walk and ride bikes, and generally spreading this community enthusiasm.
