Proposed Little Yarra Trail

Share your ideas and local knowledge as we plan the design of the proposed trail and understand what's important to you.

We are planning to enhance the quality and extent of streamside vegetation along the Little Yarra River, through the removal of exotic vegetation, exclusion of domestic stock and targeted revegetation.

As part of this project we have identified the opportunity of improving recreational activities, amenity, community access and connection to the waterway by constructing a new walking trail along the river which connects with the existing Lilydale to Warburton Rail Trail.

The section we are seeking your feedback on starts at the Warburton Highway and links up with the Warburton - Lilydale Rail Trail. Other stages are being considered by Melbourne Water and Yarra Ranges Council however will not be delivered as part of this project.
