The Rokeby to Crossover Rail Trail
This trail is part of the Warragul to Noojee branch line which is also home of the impressive trestle bridge not far from the town of Noojee. The Noojee line was opened in sections from 1890 to 1919 and closed between 1954 and 1958. Many sections have since been sold off.
Starting at Rokeby, north of Warragul, this trail follows the original formation for 4 kms to an area called Crossover where there is another wooden bridge over the railway formation.
From Crossover the trail deviates from the formation and follows the road reserve for 3 kms to Neerim South, then another 5.6 km Neerim, with views of the railway formation and surrounding hills and valleys the whole way. There are seats on the Rokeby to Crossover section spaced at 1 km intervals along the trail for the comfort of the weary traveller. This trail is on the same former railway line as the Noojee Trestle Bridge Rail Trail.
Rokeby Flora and Fauna Reserve
This extension takes the trail from Rokeby to the west, along the old rail line easement towards the old station area of Bravington. It runs between Brandy Creek Road and Old Telegraph Rd West. Tracks within the flora reserve provide access to the Tarago River for fishing and a sheltered picnic spot. The reserve is home to significant flora including the Strzelecki Gum, Common Heath and Round-leaf Pomaderris. From August to April, the Imperial White Butterfly may be seen in the reserve.
