Goulburn to Crookwell is a 54km, grade 2 One Way hike located in Country NSW and ACT New South Wales. The hike should take approximately 2 days to complete.


This is a proposed rail trail and is not yet open. It is one of the potential Rail Trails identified throughout NSW.

Another high altidtude railway that crosses the Great Dividing Range to reach Crookwell (altitude 890m) The 54km line from Goulburn opened in 1902 and operations ceased in 1985. In addition another line branched off from Roslyn to Taralga which closed in 1957, though we understand all this land has been freeholded.

Several locals are investigating the possibility of creating a rail trail along this route. At the Crookwell end the Goulburn Crookwell Heritage Railway Inc. is proposing to run rail trolleys but the terrain permits a rail-side trail so the theme of the trail will be “Bike, Hike & Trike”.
