Rails to TrailThe Rails to Trail project which is taking off worldwide encourages towns,
shires, and/or States to turn old disused railway lines into cycle and walk trails.
Busselton to Flinders Bay Rail TrailThe Busselton - Flinders Bay Trail is an 18km cycle and
walk path taking you through some of the most beautiful natural bush, farmland and vineyards in the region. This
trail was once one part of the old railway network that was built by M.C. Davies , during the timber boom in the South-West region of Western Australia. The trail
begins or ends (depending where you start) at Cowaramup and finishes at Margaret River. Several farmers and land owners have kindly allowed the public to access the
old railway lines that often cut through their properties.
There are also bridges, creeks and streams in the 5km section north of Margaret River and several
link trails which (if you choose) will lead you on another journey.
