Discover the Trail


​​​Railway Reserves Heritage Trail retraces 59km of the ol​d 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 s​tart 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 lea​d and horses can be ridden along the Trail, except in National Parks.
