Castlemaine-Maryborough Rail Trail

Blaze a trail with us! We’re building overwhelming support for a new world-class recreational trail for all in Central Victoria.

There’s a 55km rail corridor that winds through Dja Dja Wurrung country from Castlemaine to Maryborough. Over the decades it has fallen into disuse and been abandoned.

Castlemaine-Maryborough Rail Trail was founded in 2020 to transform it into a trail for cyclists, walkers and horse-riders of all ages.

We want to connect communities, defend safe travel, encourage tourism, look after the bush and tell amazing stories of place and people.

CMRT uses grassroots action to inspire communities and spur governments to lead the charge to establish a new trail in Central Victoria.

Our community outreach aims to rally people of all ages and backgrounds behind the idea of a trail. To build a trail, we need to build a movement.
