A short section of trail has been developed between Yarram and Alberton. The old railway line once went from Foster to Alberton and then split, reaching Yarram and Port Albert.
- The 7km from Yarram to Alberton follows the old railway alignment for 6.5km. This is signposted as the Tarra Trail.
- The trail starts as a bike path on the west side of the main road through Alberton, and ends just north of the Yarram Station building.
- It is also possible to ride via either of two roads to Port Albert, the original gateway to the Goldfields. Many historic buildings remain.
The trail follows the historic Great Southern Railway route through farmland with views of the Strzelecki Ranges and Wilsons Promontory. This easy to ride trail is perfect for young children and it's close to seaside Port Albert for a post-ride meal.
