Why community and connection are so important

Steph Ryan MP

This magazine throws a spotlight on the stories of more than 50 community groups and businesses, and over 110 people in Kilmore.

I’d like to thank each and every person who gave their time to share their stories.


Friends of the Bendigo to Kilmore Rail Trail

Lindsay Clay has cycled the 100-kilometre return length of the O’Keefe Rail Trail many times.

“Cycling along gradient neutral surfaces like rail trails is great exercise,” he says. “There is little wear and tear on the body. It’s also very social.”

The chair of the planning group for Friends of the Bendigo to Kilmore Rail Trail, Lindsay is passionate about the development of rail trails in Central Victoria. He says that this infrastructure is ‘critical’ to boosting health and wellbeing in local populations, as well as promoting tourism.

“Overall, Friends of the Bendigo to Kilmore Rail trail is an advisory body,” Lindsay says. “We promote the benefits of rail trail cycling with a strong community focus. Our goal is to work collaboratively with all stakeholders to develop an interconnected network of trails over time.”
