Rode the full length from Bairnsdale to Orbost. Track condition and scenery are awesome from Bairnsdale to Nowa Nowa and rated 5/5. However between Nowa Nowa and Orbost the trail becomes less maintained and more of a vehicle track with what seems long-term ruts, and a larger river rock type of surface that should only be attempted with a mountain bike and spare tubes/puncture kit and some extra time....

Didn’t ride the trail but stops at numerous attractions along rail trail. Quite a few attractive trestle bridges along trail the best being the Stony Creek trestle bridge. Another highlight was the Mitchell River area near Bairnsdale

So... if you were a cyclist and not just a walker like I am... You could appreciate the distance you can do on this trail. Over 200 kilometres! Through Gippsland! That's going to be a spectacular ride. BUT if you are a walker like myself you will appreciate that rail trails are a great place to walk as they have been well maintained. And I like the quirky things you see along the way... like this stop I shared... they have an old railway signal there.

We stayed at Tostaree farm stay which was lovely and Vicky very friendly. Rode our bikes from there to Orbost and back spending time at Orbost bakery did some shopping in the supermarket. Went to Nowa Nowa pub for a beer and bought a carton, we were with the car. Next day we rode our bike to Bruthen stopping at Nowa Nowa mingling waters cafe and have a look at the wood sculptures. At bruthen we went to the bulla t brewery for a beautiful lunch. The second day the trail came through some of the affected areas and one of the old trestle bridges was partly burned which is always sad when historical stuff gets lost. Four trestle bridges on this section a beautiful ride thoroughly enjoyed ourselves and felt good about supporting these small communities
