We’re building new walking and cycling trails in Melbourne’s north.

The Northern Metropolitan Trails program is providing targeted investment into new priority off-road cycling and walking trails in northern metropolitan Melbourne to increase active recreation and the safety of cyclists and pedestrians and enhance communities’ ability to connect with nature.

We are working closely with the northern Melbourne municipalities and La Trobe University to construct the new trail projects.
