Rail Trails x 3

Postby oxonabike » Thu Mar 07, 2013 8:53 pm

Back in January during annual leave, I spent a week in Victoria, based in Melbourne, doing a bit of low key touring of some rail trails I've been wanting to explore. For anyone interested, some trip reports are posted on my website:

Tallarook to Alexandra

Bright to Wangaratta

Bairnsdale to Nowa Nowa

There are also some older rail trail reports from trips done in previous years in the 'blog' part of the site.

Good stuff!

I am wanting to do the whole East Gippsland trail return over 2 days at some point, not in summer that is for sure!

Why not take a few more days and extend the ride on from Orbost down to Marlo or on to Cape Conran?
I did this a few weeks ago. Excellent, flat cycling country.
Good campground at Conran and beautiful, almost unspoilt coastal scenery.
Break the trip up and stay at Orbost, Marlo, Nowa Nowa, Lakes Entrance, Metung or Bruthen. Tons of accommodation if you don't carry a tent.
