Event description

Description

Part of the Bein' Green in Bendigo festival over the Victorian Labour Day Weekend:

Discover the O’Keefe Rail Trail!

Join local Axedale resident Tania Nally in an meandering tour of the lovely O'Keefe Rail Trail.

Here's a little about the trail: "Travellers have been taking this historic journey from Bendigo to Heathcote since 1888, when the train service was a Victorian Railways timetabled Wallan - Bendigo schedule. Trains stopped running in 1958, and the route lay largely dormant until the first section of the O’Keefe Rail Trail opened in 1993."

"The safe, mostly-level walking and cycling trail is one of Victoria’s great family-friendly journeys. It passes through some spectacular natural bushland, past waterways and recreation reserves, perfect for picnics, wildflower or platypus spotting."

The meeting point for the start of the ride will be the Axedale Public Hall, 94 High Street, Axedale.

Parking: There is lots of parking next to the hall and in the nearby streets.



Note: This is a BYO bike, helmet and other safety equipment event. If you're unsure of the necessary equipment then please contact Tania via the Greens Facebook Page to discuss.

Ride plan: Meeting at the Axedale Public Hall, the half way point between Bendigo and Heathcote, we'll start with a ride by of the lovely Campaspe River at Axedale, through its platypus and cockatoo haunts, and make our way back to Bendigo to Lake Weeroona before heading back to Axedale.

For those of you that are not up for the return trip to Axedale, please contact us on the Greens Facebook page to find out about options for getting you and your bikes delivered to the Tavern from the Lake in Bendigo in time for our 9am start time.



About the event leader:

Tania returned to her home-town of Bendigo from Melbourne just over five years ago, and has much enjoyed discovering the fabulously relaxed yet rich lifestyle that Bendigo has on offer.
