Lilydale to Warburton Rail Trail




Walk or cycle along the railway line that was built in 1901 to carry produce from Warburton to Melbourne and delivered tourists to the area on the return trip.

Choose between a series of short walks or an exciting trail ride, and look out for kangaroos, bird life and spring wildflowers between Lilydale and Mt Evelyn, and butterflies and tree ferns on the way to Wandin.

Stop off at the old railway station at Yarra Junction, now a pioneer museum, before taking in the magnificent views of the Central Highlands and Yarra Ranges National Park along the section to Wesburn. Relax at the Sam Knott Hotel (licensed 1863) at Wesburn before setting off on the final five-kilometre stretch to Warburton, a popular retreat and the end of the trail.

Pass through beautiful bush, lush fern gullies, sweeping grazing properties on the fertile Yarra River flood plains, past wineries, flower farms, the Yarra River and the Yarra Ranges National Park and state forest.

Take time to enjoy the spectacular views of the Dandenong and Yarra Ranges, the beauty of the Yarra River and the surrounding bush.
