Goldfields Track

The Great Dividing Trail Association planned and built the Goldfields Track during 20 years of volunteering. The 210km track comprises three linked tracks between Buninyong and Ballarat in the south and Bendigo in the north. The Goldfields Track is both walker and mtb accessible, with signed diversions where single use is required.

 

The Wallaby Track links Buninyong, Ballarat, Creswick and Daylesford. The Dry Diggings Track links Daylesford and Castlemaine. The Leanganook Track links Castlemaine and Bendigo.

 

The Great Dividing Trail network comprises nearly 300 km of tracks that traverse the top of the Great Dividing Range in central Victoria.
