Rail Trail Lilydale to Warburton

 

  • This trail passes through a scenic landscape following the Yarra River Valley, with a backdrop of the Yarra Ranges National Park.
  • Plenty of good places to stay and great things to consume in the region’s cafes, pubs, wineries and restaurants.
  • The trail has a climb up to Mt Evelyn from both directions
  • Mainly on a bike and walk only trail, some busy road crossings required.

 

This rail trail is one of Australia's most popular, starting from the end of the metropolitan rail network at Lilydale then heading through increasingly rural landscape to the resort town of Warburton nestled in the mountains. 

Most of the original station platforms are still present with replica station signage, however many station buildings have been lost through time. The Station building at Yarra Junction is the original building from Lilydale Station and is now a museum.

The Warburton railway line was opened in 1901 to ferry farm produce from the Yarra Valley to Melbourne. Timber was also a major commodity being transported on the line after many tramways through the yarra Valley forests were linked with the line at Warburton and Yarra Junction. The line closed in 1965 and the track removed  in 1969. Rails are still be visible at some of the level crossings.
