Richards Tramline

COVID-19 (2020): For the latest information, please see

This walk follows a historic tramline where horses and later, steam locomotives once hauled logs out of the forest. Along the walk you will come across parts of the old tramway and relics of an old timber mill before exiting the bush and walking west back into town.

Follows old timber tramline along Mississippi Valley. Surface can get boggy and walkers should expect to clamber over the odd downed tree.
