High Country Rail Trail

A couple of weeks ago my wife and I rode departed Wodonga late afternoon and rode out to Tallangatta and stayed the night before returning the next morning. Very enjoyable missing the heat of the day and heaps of colourful birds all the way out in the evening. Huon to Tallangatta is great especially riding across the bridge with the water level up so high. Tallangatta Motel was good value for money. Tallangatta Hotel didn't leave the same feeling but bakery was better in the morning.

Opening of the High Country Rail Trail

The long awaited Opening of the High Country Rail Trail

The long awaited opening of the High Country Rail Trail in Victoria has finally arrived with the completion of the Sandy Creek bridge. Started in 2006, completion of the trail was significantly delayed as the bridge construction was planned on the basis of the Hume being dry, but with recent rains this plan needed to change. Ground breaking construction methods were needed, including floating the bridge into place, to accommodate the new water filled Hume.
