Australian Geographic Magazine
Hot off the press if this month’s (January/February) edition of the iconic Australian magazine – Australian Geographic.
Late last year, we were visited by Christie Goldrick from Australian Geographic Magazine. She was keen to photograph the rail trail, talk to locals, ride the rail trail on her own to get a feel for it and then meet up with local volunteers from our Tumbarumba to Rosewood Rail Trail Steering Committee.
Christie went on to write a fantastic story on our Tumbarumba to Rosewood Rail Trail. It is refreshing, interesting and spot on! Chrissie shared how she hadn’t been on a bike for 20 years but after hiring an e-bike from Tumba Bikes and Blooms, she ended up thoroughly enjoying the experience, complete with the history of the railway line and seeing the impact it has had on our area.
Other local users were also interviewed along the trail and Jenny from Gone Barny Nursery & Eucalyptus at Rosewood is featured too! We stopped in today on our social Saturday ride and showed her a copy, as we enjoyed lunch and the best ever milk shakes! She’d already been informed of the story by a relative who is a subscriber. Jenny quipped that it’s nearly up there with being featured by David Attenborough 🙂
So good for our area, considering this time last year we were battling dreadful bushfires and most of the town had been evacuated which ended up lasting for a month!
Get out and find yourself a copy!!
Rail Trails Australia
We have been fortunate to have lots of support from Rail Trails Australia over many years and now that our rail trail is up and running, they have been fantastic with promoting it for us. In their latest edition of their magazine we are again featured and we are very thankful!
Pedal Power ACT
Lots of cyclists have visited from Canberra to ride our rail trail, as we are about a 3 hour drive away, so not that difficult to do for a weekend away or if you’re keen a day trip!
In the latest issue of the Pedal Power newsletter there are multiple stories about our rail trail, with members writing up their thoughts after visiting our area. It’s all been so positive to read and we really are thrilled with the response so far!
Once COVID travel restrictions are lifted we will have many more people visiting us than can do at the present moment.
How did you hear about our rail trail? Did you see it on social media, or in print somewhere or from word of mouth? We’d be interested to hear from you.
