The Bunny Rail Trail is a 0.75km, grade 2 one way hike, located in Western Victoria, Victoria. The hike should take approximately 30 mins to complete.

Hike Summary

This trail follows a short section of the former East Ballarat - Buninyong railway (Bunny).

This very short trail is suitable for a stroll, with  the Eureka Centre as the destination.

The trail continues through a cutting, across a road (with rails still in the road), alongside a caravan park to the trail end. Here there is another historic sign board at  the north edge of the  Eureka Centre car park.

This trail was a branch line from East Ballarat to Buninyong and ran for 11km. It opened in 1889 and closed in 1986.
