Rail Trail Family Fun Day – 1st birthday celebrations

Riding the rail trail

Finally our long awaited Family Fun Day and 1st birthday celebrations of the Tumbarumba to Rosewood Rail Trail are almost ready to happen – it’s all going ahead this coming Saturday 10 April 2021.

It’s our third attempt at running an opening celebration, each previous one thwarted by Covid restrictions. Luckily though each previous attempt had dreadful weather on the day, so we are kind of happy we had to wait! It will be cooler on Saturday than it has been these past few weeks but so far no rain is forecast!

We have a very full schedule of fun events across the rail trail and Tumbarumba and Rosewood.

It’s going to be the ‘Unofficial Official Opening’ and will be a fun day for all ages!

Here is a summary of the events taken from the program.

We also have a free shuttle bus running all day with bike trailers!
