Formed in late 2017, Friends of the Great Victorian Rail Trail is a community group of ‘like minded volunteers’ working to provide input to the three respective Shires; Mansfield, Murrindindi and Mitchell around the ongoing management, development and promotion of the rail trail to increase its economic benefit to the local communities.
The Friends of the GRVT group was formed in response to the need to further develop the rail trail, to act as a contact point for the various stakeholders with a common interest in the trail, and to work as an advocacy body for improvements to the asset. Increasing usage of the rail trail is essential to its sustainability and an important means of encouraging the development of this very valuable community asset.
Meetings are held on the second Thursday of each month at the Mansfield Library. If you are interested in joining or helping with this Friends Group, then contact Ross Vaughan (Chair) on 5775 1332 or email at [email protected]
