High Country Rail Trail

High Country Rail Trail

From Wodonga to Tallangatta and onto Shelley in Victoria's North East, the High Country Rail Trail meanders along the foreshore of Lake Hume, through pine plantations and State forests, past old timber trestle bridges and Shelley Station, one of the highest railway stations in the country.

No two days, or two seasons are the same. The diverse birdlife of the Kiewa River woodlands contrasts with the crystal clear reflections from Lake Hume. 

There are regular parking and rest areas along the Trail and you can explore sections at your leisure. The architecturally designed, stunning Sandy Creek Bridge is now in place and makes for a spectacular traverse across the Sandy Creek inlet to Lake Hume.
