It’s one of the most picturesque trails for cycling. You’ll be treated to spectacular views as you cycle through rural farmland, beautiful coastal bushlands, historic coal reserves and stunning coastlines. It also links you to the George Bass Coastal Walk located at Kilcunda, so that you can easily walk from San Remo’s Punch Bowl to Wonthaggi.

The Bass Coast Rail Trail starts at the Wonthaggi Railway Station in Murray Street to the Woolamai Racecourse in Woolamai.

Aside from cyclists, the trail also attracts horse riders from Anderson to Wonthaggi. However, horse riding isn’t allowed once you reach the centre of Wonthaggi. The extension from Anderson to Woolamai is ideal for both horse riders and walkers.

It’s also good to keep in mind that recreational vehicles aren’t allowed on the trail, or else fines may be applied.

There are numerous attractions to encounter on the Bass Coast Rail Trail. These include the historic Anderson Station, Kilcunda Station, Kilcunda Trestle Bridge, Dalyston Station, and the State Coal Mine, among others.

The Bass Coast Rail Trail makes an excellent day trip in the area, but camping isn’t allowed. Visitors with large groups can organise an event with the Arts and Leisure Team.
