There’s not a lot to say about the Geelong Rail Trail other than it is a safe track to ride your bike and/or walk. No cars, not many roads to cross.

The trail follows old railway tracks which means that gradient is never too big. There are few climbs but they are definitely achievable even for people who do not cycle often. You do need certain level of fitness if you plan to ride whole way...More

Felt pretty safe on this bike path as most of it is away from traffic. Did it in autumn and had the wind against us all the way to Queenscliff but the return cycle was therefore a lot easier! Great cafes and places to eat...More

You can walk the dog, walk or ride with friends and family along the Bellarine Rail Trail. There are plenty of places along the way (or not too far away) for coffee and a bite to eat. It is away from the highway so you...More
