We want to encourage more people to use trails in the northern suburbs to get around, to enjoy themselves and to connect with nature. 

So, as well as developing new parks and upgrading and expanding existing ones, we are building new walking and cycling trails.

Plenty River Trail

This project will complete the Plenty River Trail’s 21 kilometre missing link between University Hill in Bundoora and Doreen to the north. It includes 17 kilometres of new walking and cycling trails to connect to existing trails.

It will link Mernda and Hawkstowe railway stations and make it easier for the community to access the Plenty River and Plenty Gorge Park.

Northern Metropolitan Trails

The Northern Metropolitan Trails program seeks to provide investment into new trails with a focus in the municipalities of Banyule, Darebin, Hume, Moreland, Nillumbik and Whittlesea in Melbourne’s north. 

We will work with local councils to determine trail locations. More information about specific new trails will be available soon. In the meantime, you can contact the project team for further information.
