Murray to Mountains Rail Trail

Bright, Rail Trail

The Murray to Mountains Rail Trail is the perfect way to discover the diverse countryside of North East Victoria, from natural bushland to open farmland, hidden valleys and some of the most beautiful mountain ranges in Australia. Not to mention the endless winebeerfood and fresh produce you will find along the way.

Suitable for all ages and fitness levels, for cyclists and walkers, and for all budgets, the trail provides over 100 kilometres of sealed trails and the perfect link between the culinary villages of Beechworth, Rutherglen, Bright & Wangaratta. More recently the shared trail network has been extended from Wangaratta to Milawa, Bright and Wandiligong.
