Linking central Victoria via the old railway line
The O’Keefe Rail Trail has recently been upgraded and extended from Axedale to Heathcote, making this a continuous 49km rail trail between Bendigo, Axedale and Heathcote. As an exciting new development for the region, this is particular focussed on the cycle and walking tourism market segments as well as being a great activity facility for local community members.
Businesses along the new trail, including food and coffee outlets, pubs /tavern, B&Bs /accommodation, activity centres, wineries and cellar doors, are providing services and experiences for trail users and visitors to the area.
Points of interest, including natural waterway environments, bushlands and forests, local flora and fauna, the chance to perhaps see a platypus in the Campaspe River, viticulture such as vineyards and olive groves, farmlands, Lake Eppalock, historic buildings and cemeteries, former railway and mining related history, all make planning a ride or walk including overnight stays along this the latest rail trail in Victoria very appealing.
