Discover the Trail


Railway Reserves Heritage Trail retraces 59km of the old Eastern Railway, passing through reserves you will discover the individual history, story and character of the settlements that sprung up alongside the line. 

The most Western point to start your journey is from Bellevue where you can follow the old Eastern Railway lines either in a north or south direction of Great Eastern Highway. The two lines rejoin at Mount Helena forming a unique 41km loop entirely on railway formations before extending 18km east to Wooroloo Reserve. 

Access to Railway Reserves Heritage Trail is free, although a National Park fee applies for visitors who access the Trail from John Forrest National Park's main car park. It is suitable for walking and cycling, with dogs welcome on a lead and horses can be ridden along the Trail, except in National Parks.
