Rail transport in Victoria

The Yackandandah Line was a railway line in Victoria, Australia. The line was one of the earliest routes constructed in Victoria, serving the town of Beechworth.

Beechworth was a major town in the region and was active in campaigning for a railway to be constructed to serve the town possibly as part of the main route into New South Wales. This was not to be and instead the line to Beechworth was to be constructed as a branch line from Bowser. A later extension was constructed to Yackandandah which was subsequently closed in the 1950s. The section between Everton and Beechworth lasted a little longer into the 1970s and has now been replaced with a popular rail trail in the late 1990s, the Murray to Mountains Rail Trail. The right of way between Beechworth and Yackandandah is no longer used.
