The seven municipalities of Melbourne’s north have come together to develop the Northern Regional Trails Strategy. The Strategy defines a vision and plan for the future of off-road recreational trails in Melbourne’s north which has been endorsed by the Councils of Banyule, Darebin, Hume, Moreland, Nillumbik and Whittlesea. The intent of the Strategy is to leverage the existing assets in the northern region to realise the true benefits of an integrated regional network. The potential trails have been assessed using spatial, multi-criteria and a cost-benefit analysis, with the Strategy identifying 120 existing off-road regional trails and 96 proposed trails (consisting of 121 individual projects), spanning 780 kilometres of accessible trails across the northern region.
