Great Victorian Rail Trail is a 134km, grade 3 One Way hike located in Northern Victoria Victoria. The hike should take approximately 8 days to complete.


Formerly known as the Goulburn River High Country Rail Trail, this is a high standard rail trail traversing undulating farmland.
Features the only tunnel on a rail trail in Victoria and a long bridge across Lake Eildon.
Almost all of the bridges have been made trafficable and the few low level crossings are easily graded.
There are several crossings of major rural highways
The surface is either a bitumised granite, which is suitable for wheel chairs and prams, and compacted gravel which may not be suitable for wheel chairs and prams in sections.  Where possible a separate bridle path is provided for horses.

Located at three of the best cycling destinations in Ausralia (Mansfield, Mt Buler, Bright), we can assist you with all your cycling needs.
