Riverina Highlands Rail Trail is a 21km, grade 2 One Way hike located in Country NSW and ACT New South Wales. The hike should take approximately 8hrs to complete.



Wagga Wagga to Ladysmith (21km)
Tumbarumba to Rosewood (21km)
Tumut to Batlow (32km).

It will range from the urban environment of NSW’s largest inland city of Wagga Wagga, through rich undulating farm land and up to the sub alpine areas of Tumbarumba and Batlow.

The local Tumbarumba Committee recently submitted an application to the NSW Minister for Transport via the local member Greg Aplin.  The application was to get permission to allow a pilot trail to be built between Tumbarumba and Rosewood, a distance of approx 21km.  The application was submitted with over 200 letters of support from community leaders, businesses, organisations and citizens, to demonstrate to the government that there is overwhellming support from the local community for this project.
