Bicycle Network: Ride a Trail
Lilydale - Warburton Rail Trail
Enjoy the scenic delights of the Yarra Valley with its charming wineries and stunning native landscape. Only 38km in distance, the Lilydale–Warburton Rail Trail is dotted with cafés, numerous picnic areas and you'll find yourself never far away from a winery’s cellar door.
Considered one of Australia’s best Rail Trails, it travels from the outskirts of the Melbourne suburbs through a bushy corridor to come out into an open rural landscape with picturesque views of the Yarra Ranges in the distance.
The Trail can be done as a day trip, as many people do, but there is also a range of accommodation in Warburton and other towns along the way, making it very easy to plan a weekend ride.
