Culcairn – Corowa Rail Trail is a 12km, grade 2 One Way hike located in Country NSW and ACT New South Wales. The hike should take approximately 3hrs to complete.


This trail is not open or developed.  It is one of 17 potential rail trails in NSW

Andrew Vile  is investigating the possibility of creating a 12km trail from Walla Walla to Burrumbuttock to link existing community facilities. Long term plans are to extend it to Corowa on the Murray River where it could link up with the Murray to Mountains Rail Trail.  Also to extend it to Culcairn and onto Holbrook located on the Hume Highway.

Local groups are hoping to develop this former branch line as a rail trail. Interest has been renewed in 2014 since the formation of RT4NSW. This group is actively lobbying the State Government to allow development of Rail Trails on ex-gov lines in NSW. For further information click on the link below.
