Friends of the Bendigo-Kilmore Rail Trail

Linking central Victoria via the old railway line

Friends plan a visit to High Country Rail Trail

It’s not all hard work digging post holes and shovelling fill as a member of the Friends. We often plan trips to check out other rail trails.

In April (Saturday 20 and Sunday 21) we’re heading off to ride the High Country Rail Trail from Ebden to Tallangatta/Old Tallangatta. The ride follows the edge of Lake Hume and goes across the new, but already-iconic, Sandy Creek bridge. We’re planning to stay at the Boathaven Holiday Park, Ebden (the Bonegilla end of the trail),  where there is the option of camping or booking a cabin.

If you’re a member of the Friends and would like to join the trip, please contact us with an expression of interest before 29 March and we’ll send you more details as plans are firmed up.

If you’re not a member, this might just tempt you to join us! See the link to the membership application form on our home page.

We will be riding over the stunning Sandy Creek Bridge over Lake Hume when we visit the High Country Rail Trail. (Yes, we admit it, rail trail people always get excited about bridges.) This photo from John Miller’s High Country Rail Trail photo stream on FlickR.
