Enjoy exploring the history of the original settlement of Donnybrook. On February 16th 1993 the railway line between Auburn and Clare was devastated by bushfires during the Ash Wednesday disaster. In 1993 the old railway lines were removed and the Riesling Trail was developed as a walking and riding trail. This trail passes through a landscape of rolling hillsides, vineyards, wildflowers in spring and olive trees. From the former Clare rail yards it runs through wine growing regions to Auburn continuing on as the Rattler Trail to Riverton. The trail has been extended north of Clare to Barinia. The Riesling Trail can be enjoyed all year round at a pace to suit the young and the not so young.
Our goal is to provide the budget traveller with a “five star” experience at an affordable price.
