Linking central Victoria via the old railway line

A Heathcote to Murchison Trail a reality?

The Campaspe Shire council is in the planning stages for extending the Greater Shepparton City Council’s current ‘Murchison Rail Trail’ on to Rushworth and Heathcote.

This extended trail section, when formally constructed, could link the O’Keefe Rail Trail (Heathcote to Bendigo) to the Murchison East railway station. A Heathcote to Murchison Trail proposal brochure has been produced by the Campaspe Shire.

Support by community, businesses and trail users for this trail is to be encouraged, so have your say, contact the Campaspe Shire council, the Greater Shepparton City council and your local State Government representative.

    This Rail Trail won’t reach its potential until it reaches Rushworth and the bridge over the Goulburn is opened. The link to Heathcote will be a great addition.
