Friends of the trail


Friends of the Gippsland Plains Rail Trail - for users and supporters

A 'friends' network of trail users and supporters, including cyclists, riders, walkers, schools and service groups, assists the Gippsland Plains Rail Trail Committee of Management in its management and operation of the trail by:

Providing information to the Committee of Management about what needs doing along the trail, and about the use of the trail. i.e. Who uses it? What for? When do they use it? Where do they go?      This helps inform construction, maintenance, beautification and marketing of the trail. 

Undertaking work to assist with the construction, maintenance and marketing of the trail.

Involvement in the friends network provides opportunities for interested people to be actively engaged in the management of the trail - as a social outlet, to give back to the community, to upgrade skills, for physical health and well being, or to advocate for the trail.

Member interests are varied, and include:

  • the condition of the track
  • infastructure along the trail
  • recreation and/or tourism
  • vegitation including planting and weed control
  • history of the former railway

We welcome your support, and encourage you to join the Gippsland Plains Rail Trail friends network. Individuals and groups are welcome to register.
