Birregurra-Forrest Rail Trail



The Birregurra-Forrest Rail Trail or "Tiger Rail Trail" is a rail trail following the route of the former Forrest branch railway line

The overall plan for this trail is for it to start in Birregurra, meander along the old railway formation, through Deans Marsh, to the existing section near Barwon Downs and on to Forrest which will be a total length of 30 km.

Currently 7km of the trail is completed from the Forrest end.

The trail's "Tiger" name comes from the days when trains stopped running between the towns. A converted Dodge sedan, painted black and yellow, ferried passengers instead.

The trail begins in Forrest, across the road from the Forrest Hotel on Henry Street. The original railway station site can be seen 500m further south, down Station Street.
