Friends of the Bendigo-Kilmore Rail Trail

Linking central Victoria via the old railway line

Friends clean up

Twenty-seven pairs of hands arrived to work on a section of the O’Keefe Rail Trail on Clean Up Australia Day, Sunday 4 March. It was the biggest turn-out since we’ve been taking part in the event and meant we were finished within a couple of hours. Apart from the usual bottles, lunch wrappings, foam coffee cups and cigarette packets, we collected a roll of rusty barbed wire and an oxygen cylinder. The recent soaking rain has made for a lot of happy frogs and all sorts of colourful and delicate fungus, and the work done on the existing trail surface has held up well in the wet. Thanks to everyone who came to help.
