Last Updated on September 24, 2016

A new regional trails strategy for Melbourne's north was Launched at Federation square last week, with more than 780km of off-road trails to be built, upgraded and linked.

Victorian Minister for Sport, Tourism and Major Events the Hon. John Eren MP unveiled the plans for the Northern Regional Trails Network (NRTN) which includes 120 existing trails and 96 proposed trails and will link attractions including Montsalvat, Organ Pipes National Park, La Trobe Wildlife Sanctuary and the Heidelberg Artist Trail.

Funded and developed by seven of Melbourne's major northern municipalities including (Banyule, Whittlesea, Darebin, Morland, Hume, Yarra and Nillumbik), the Northern Regional Trails Strategy provides a blueprint and strategic framework for the future development and maintenance of a recreational offroad trail network in Melbourne's north.

Darebin Creek Trail - McKimmies Rd to Sycamore Reserve Works Complete

Last Updated on December 6, 2015

Works have been completed on upgrading the Darebin Creek Trail between McKimmies Road and Sycamore Reserve (approximately one kilometre in length) to a 2.5 metre wide concrete shared path (Whittlesea Leader Article below).

This is an exciting development and is part of an overall plan that the Whittlesea BUG has been advocating for to eventually link the South Morang Rail Extension Bike Path with the Metropolitan Ring Road Bike Path via a fully paved Darebin Creek Trail.

We commend the City of Whittlesea for their commitment to this project.
