Linking central Victoria via the old railway line


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, assisting in a number of ways for the O’Keefe Rail Trail development, advocating for the creation of a Wallan to Heathcote rail trail, upgrading the Bendigo Bushland Trail, creating a linked network of trails in regional Victoria, caring about community health  and wellbeing, encouraging more people to walk and ride bicycles, and generally spreading this community enthusiasm.
