O'Keefe Rail Trail

Bushland Reserve


The O’Keefe Rail Trail takes you through majestic native forests, rich farmland, picturesque waterways and past Bendigo heritage spots.

Forged over a century ago by Victoria’s rail pioneers, it is named after Andrew O’Keefe, a Bendigo rail pioneer.

A ride or walk along this trail is a good day out for individuals, couples and families.

The 49-km trail has plenty of access points and numerous experiences along the trail including restaurants, wineries, accommodation, family attractions and bike services to support riders.
