In a wine region blessed with abundant sunshine, and long languid summers a ride along the Murray to Mountains Rail Trail from Rutherglen to the banks of the mighty Murray River in Wahgunyah is a charm. The shortest of all the rail trails, and possibly the flattest. Sip some of Australias oldest wines and trundle past some of the oldest vines over a leisurely nine kilometre ride.
Set out early in Summer to avoid the heat or save this little leg for Winter when the crisp sunny blue skies, so well known in the North East, make it a perfect full day activity before cocooning back in your cottage with a local red. This short, flat leg of the Murray to Mountains is also ideal for the little ones keen to hit the trail. Remember to pack the togs in Summer for a refreshing dip, when you reach the Murray River in Wahgunyah.
Pure joy as you wake to the sunrise. Awe as you make it to the snowy peak. A sense of adventure as you motor across red plains. The relief of rejuvenation as you wade into an alpine stream. Connection as you taste native, fragrant leaves. A sense of belonging as you return to your favourite holiday house. Freedom as you dash into the waves. Discover the endless feelings a visit to NSW can inspire.
