Reaching the O’Keefe Rail Trail by public transport


The dominant culture suggests that a car is essential. Well it’s not! Victoria is vast yet it has a comprehensive public transport system that reaches most places. It is modern, comfortable and not expensive. I depend on public transport and it’s great to get around!

I love rail trails and long-distance trails and have travelled many all over Victoria, Australia, and the O’Keefe Rail Trail of 19-km is one. The trail follows a flat terrain and passes through box-ironbark and yellow gum woodland. This walk is a splendid day’s outing. The start of the trail is one kilometre from the corner of the McIvor Highway and Taig Road.
