Rails for Trails
The Busselton to Flinders Bay Rail Trail (controlled by The National Trust of Australia WA) is a reincarnation of the original rail route for the cartage of timber from Flinders Bay to the Busselton Jetty. The route distance is some 108 KM and whilst the railway has not operated for 50 years, there are a number of remaining elements that will be restored and interpretation centres created on route with the intention of making this historic rail corridor one of the exciting things to do near Busselton.
Construction has already begun on walking and cycling paths that follow the original rail corridor which dissects the Vasse development. More than just restoring aspects of the significant history of the region, the Rails for Trails corridor will offer residents intriguing walkways along the route the original pioneers used to transport their timber. The cycle paths will also give cycling enthusiasts and families alike the opportunity to take a scenic tour of the area.
Living at Vasse means you can put on your trainers, grab your bike or simply treat your four-legged friend to a healthy stroll, and follow in the footsteps of the original pioneers of the area.
