This is a relatively short rail trail with a high quality sealed surface traversing absolutely classic Australian farming landscape.
You can easily lengthen the ride with several options:
- Mary St to Treacy Rd along the rail trail (5.5km)
- Treacy Rd to Mary St via Chateau Rd (8.7km)
- Treacy Rd to Mary St via McCormack Rd, Wrens Quarry Dookie Rd and McDonald Rd (14.7km)
The start of the trail is not hard to find in the small but active town of Dookie.
From Dookie the trail traverses open farmland with rolling hills in the distant. There are no facilities along or at the end of the rail trail.
A visit to the nearby Warby Ranges is recommended. A pretty long cycle! but you could drive up on the way through to Wangaratta.
The branch line to Katamatite was constructed by the Yarrawonga Shire in 1890 and taken over by the Victorian Railways in 1892. The railway was closed in 1986 and the rails removed shortly after. The branch line from Shepparton to Dookie is still used by grain trains.

COMBINED POSTAGE FOR THE PURCHASE OF SEVERAL ITEMS
Our internal shipping charge calculator will tell you the cost of your postage prior to your checkout. In most cases buying more than 1 item will result in cost savings to you.
- Small items up to 500g cost around $7 postage. Depending on the weight and size you will get 2 sometimes 3 small items posted for this amount.
- Most larger items post for about $12 and you will generally be able to add 1-3 small items at no extra charge
- Once you purchase products over 3 kg in weight there is generally, only a small amount of extra postage charged
COMBINED SHIPPING CHARGES FOR BULKY ITEMS
You can add smaller items together with bulky items and there will generally be no or a small added postage cost. Ordering items such as 2 bike cases may not result in any savings due to their volume. Ordering mid-size items like two fluid trainers together will result in very good savings though.
