Great Dividing Trail
Coordinates: The Great Dividing Trail is a multi-use track through the historical Goldfields region of Victoria to the north-west and west of Melbourne. The trail passes along the southern most parts of Australia's Great Dividing Range.
The Great Dividing Trail has four legs, three of which meet at Daylesford. The trail was primarily intended for hiking, but has proven attractive to mountain bikers, and is being further developed for that purpose.
As the tracks pass through populated areas, they are suitable for day walks. In total, there are 280 kilometres of walking track.
The four sections are as follows:
- Lerderderg Track (80 km)
- This track runs from Bacchus Marsh to Daylesford, through Lerderderg State Park, via Mt Blackwood and the township of Blackwood.
- Wallaby Track (92 km)
- Formerly known as Federation Track, it runs from Buninyong, via Ballarat, Creswick and Mollongghip to Daylesford.
- Dry Diggings Track (55 km)
- The first section to be implemented, it runs from Castlemaine to Daylesford, via Fryerstown, Vaughan Springs and Hepburn Springs.
- Leanganook Track (58 km)
- This section runs from Castlemaine to Bendigo.
There is no particular order in which sections should be completed, and each can be done independently. In addition, each section has several entry points, meaning many different combinations are possible.
