“Blues on the rails”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 13, 2013

Went on the blues train with 206 other blues fans. Great experience and fantastic music in each carriage . Meal was ok but we weren't there for fine dining. Highly recommended for both musicians, wanna be musicians or just those how want a great night with a difference. Blues train has been departing queenscliff for the last 19 years and runs on time every time

“A Fantastic Ride”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 7, 2013

The best way to enjoy this ride initially is to park near the Leopold Sports Club and ride to Queenscliff. It is an easy ride for the most part and I would suggest that you time your ride so as to enjoy a lunch at Queenscliff. Either fish and chips in the park or enjoy one of the many eateries in the town. Even a ride to the wharf area is worthwhile.

“a great way to spend a day”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 19, 2013

This is my favourite bike trail in the Geelong region. It is 98% off road so is relaxed with outlooks not normally available to anyone else. It is basically a day outing depending on your fitness, such that fit riders would start at Geelong and ride the full 30 odd kilometers to Queenscliff then back, while better is to start at Drysdale and ride about 16km again to the end at Queenscliff. Queenscliff has some fine eaterys, ships, views, beaches etc etc so several hours can be spent before either riding or catching the steam train back to Drysdale. This is a mountain bike track as some of it is on gravel. Hire bikes can be found in Geelong.

“great for the kids”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 12, 2013

we live not too far from an entry point and we ride or walk between two main roads. It is a great safe environment for the kids learning how to ride with out training wheels and the surface is pretty smooth.
