Starting at Anderson, there is a car park and bus stop for easy access. Having never been on a rail trail before, we were amazed at what a great bike track it is. A lovely way to see the countryside and spectacular coastline. It is...More

Friends asked me to come and ride with them on this trail, but I decided to do a walk instead. It's mostly flat which is good for my dodgy knees but also good for those younger kids who didn't want to ride. You can start...More

An easy walking track from Wonthaggi to Kilcunda. Some great scenery with some great coastal views. A very busy walking track.

This wasn't a bad thing to tick off. Given the whole way is pretty flat and there are no obstacles of any real kind it isn't an onerous thing even for someone who isn't on a bike often. Sure you'll wake up sore but, well,...More

We rode from the Visitor Centre in Wonthaggi to Kilcunda and return, about 14 kms each way. Generally flat and easy ride on well formed stone surface. No busy roads to cross once you get across for the VIC. Towards Kilcunda the views are breath...More
