Geocache Description:


The Murray to Mountains Rail Trail: The most developed of Victorian rail trails with a sealed surface for its entire distance. The trail follows the picturesque Ovens Valley and has beautiful views of Mt Buffalo and a good climb to historic Beechworth.



The branch railway to Beechworth opened in 1875, after a long local campaign and was extended to Yackandandah in 1891. A second branch line was built from Everton in 1883 and extended to Bright in 1890. Everton was an important regional railway junction but little evidence of it remains now. The line to Yackandandah was closed in 1956 and the last train ran to Beechworth in 1977.

This cache has been created by Beechworth Secondary College.

At GZ you are looking for a bison that could easily be dropped if not careful. Please be muggle aware and replace the cache exactly as found.

Try not to fall down either!

Good Luck & Happy Caching :-)
