Mirboo North - Boolarra Grand Ridge Rail Trail




The trail starts at Railway Park near Boolarra's historic Old Pub built a year before the original railway and now a café and bar. Following the old railway line, it climbs steadily through tall eucalypt forest, lush pastures, sheltered fern gullies and pockets of beautiful rainforest, crossing many small creeks and streams along the way.

Just outside the town of Darlimurla is the Big Tree, the last proud survivor of a stand of towering grey gums. The different types of vegetation offer important habitat for many native plants and animals. Keep an eye out for kangaroos, wallabies, echidnas and wombats, as well as noisy cockatoos, brilliant rosellas and majestic Wedge-tailed Eagles.

After an ascent of nearly 240 metres over the 13 kilometres from Boolarra, the trail ends at Mirboo North and the refreshing sight of the Grand Ridge Brewery. At Mirboo North you will find colourful historical murals depicting the town's past.
