In 2022, the Victorian State Government announced $8.5 million in funding to support the Murray to Mountains Rail Trail Enhancements project. To support the delivery of the project, Tourism North East is the lead agency, working closely with the Rural City of Wangaratta, Indigo and Alpine Shires.


Sites selected for enhancements

These sites have been specifically selected to support the strategic objectives of the project which include increasing visitation and making the Murray to Mountains Rail Trail the best trail in the southern hemisphere. The sites nominated help support the overall experience of the Murray to Mountains experience for all visitors. 

  • The Eurobin Railway station
  • The Bright to Porepunkah section of the Murray to Mountains Rail Trail
    • Includes footpath widening and Roberts Creek bridge upgrade

Civil works

Tendering has recently been completed for the path widening and bridge construction contracts through Alpine Shire Council’s normal procurement process. These will be awarded in the coming months with works to commence in the second half of 2024.
