Mont Albert : from WikipediaMelbourne's Anniversary Outer Circle Trail is a well developed eighteen-kilometre walking and cycling route along an abandoned railway corridor from Fairfield to East Malvern.

The trail has a sealed surface and is suitable for wheelchairs and all types of bikes. History boards along the route tell will keep you informed of the railway's early days.

A delightful way to travel north/south through Melbourne's leafy eastern suburbs. Minimal contact with traffic at traffic lights.

Connect to the trail by either suburban train lines: Fairfield Station or East Malvern. Better still, combine your walk or ride with the Yarra River Trail (38km) – not a rail trail (but almost as easy). The Yarra River Trail follows the river from near its mouth through the city and suburbs to Westerfolds Park and Eltham.
