Travellers have been taking this historic journey from Bendigo to Heathcote since 1888, when the railway line first linked the towns. Trains stopped running in 1956, and the route lay largely dormant until the first section of the O’Keefe Rail Trail opened in 1993. 

Today the recreational trail beside the old railway line again allows users to journey the full 50 kilometres, either on foot or cycling the trail is one of Victoria’s great family-friendly journeys. It passes through some spectacular natural bushland, past waterways and recreation reserves.
