Wallan to Heathcote Rail Trail Feasibility Study

FEASIBILITY REPORT AND DOCUMENTS NOW AVAILABLE

The possible Wallan to Heathcote Rail Trail (WHRT) is a proposed 78km shared pathway (walking, cycling, horse riding) which would run from Wallan in the south of Mitchell Shire to Heathcote in the City of Greater Bendigo.

The possible trail would closely follow the former (dismantled) rail corridor between Heathcote Junction and Heathcote. The possible trail would also include two additional spurs, the first links Wallan Station via Hidden Valley, while the second would link with Wandong.

Community Consultation was held during February, March and early April, which included:

  • 1-1 meetings with landholders
  • Group meetings with community and industry stakeholders
  • 6 listening posts (Heathcote Junction, Wandong; Wallan; Kilmore; Pyalong; Tooborac; Heathcote)
  • Online and hard copy surveys
  • Submissions

UPDATE TUESDAY 19.12.2017
The document library now contains the following:

  • Feasibility Study Vol I&II [a very large document, separated into several files]
  • Feasibility Study Summary Document
  • FAQ December 2017
  • What We Heard - a summary of community consultation (flyer)

Hard copies of these documents will be available for view at the Broadford Customer Service Centre from Wednesday 20 December 2017.

If you are an adjacent landholder or community member and would like to be added to our postal register please e: ecodev@mitchellshire.vic.gov.au .
