Friends of the Bendigo-Kilmore rail trail

Linking central Victoria via the old railway line

Working group established at tourism forum

The May community forum organised by the Friends saw a great turnout to discuss Bendigo’s cycle tourism potential. Not only do we have a rail trail under development, but a new mountain bike park is also being constructed in Bendigo. The region really needs to market its many assets well.

A small group of volunteers representing mountain bike and road bike riders, the rail trail and Heathcote community now forms the core of a new advisory group.

The group’s task is to assess the potential of various cycle tourism opportunities, provide advice to council and the Bendigo Tourism Board on priorities, and assist in seeking funding opportunities.
