CBD Walking Trails

Wangaratta boasts an extensive shared path network in and around town with sealed and unsealed paths and trails for you to explore.

 

The Wangaratta Shared Path Network takes you safely through the CBD, in and around main streets and through many of the towns’ beautiful urban park areas such as; Apex Park, King George V Garden, Merriwa/Kaluna Parks and Batchelor’s Green, all include public toilets, parking and amenities.

The Railway Station is a central network point and just opposite the station, Cafe Derailleur is popular coffee or lunch stop. A cycle friendly cafe, you will often see a row of bikes outside and people enjoying either the alfresco dining area or quirky courtyard.

The soon to be opened, Merriwa Park Bike Hub,  will provide public toilets, showers, secure bike lock ups and personal lockers - a perfect recharge point for path users of all ages and abilities!
