O'Keefe Rail Trail

Make your way through native bushland and dry forest crossing over bubbling creeks along the way. Ride or walk among gums and box trees, tea trees and wattles, or visit in late winter and springtime to enjoy the abundant wildflowers.

Take a leisurely trip past kangaroos and wallabies grazing near the trail, and see a wide range of bird life including parrots, wrens and honeyeaters.

Stop for a break under the stately peppercorn trees at the former Longlea station site (aptly renamed Peppercorn Park).

If you're riding, this trail is best suited to mountain bikes. The section of the trail from the McIvor Highway to Axedale is also suitable for horse riding.
