Gippsland Plains Rail Trail

The Gippsland Plains Rail Trail extends 63km from Traralgon to Stratford passing through country towns including Maffra, Tinamba, Heyfield and Cowwarr. The trail passes through high quality dairy country and offers panoramic views of the Great Dividing Range to the north and sweeping 360º views across the Great Gippsland Plains.

The Gippsland Plains Rail Trail is unique, as visitors can easily connect by V-line train from Melbourne or Bairnsdale to either end of the trail at Traralgon and/or Stratford. The trail is perfect for weekend short breaks with most townships along the route offering accommodation. There’s history, vibrant wineries, contemporary restaurants and cafes, exciting specialty shops, art galleries, and much more to discover along the trail.
