Riders on the Old Beechy Rail Trail

Cycling around Gellibrand

The Old Beechy Rail Trail passes through Gellibrand, Victoria at its halfway mark. This sets it as the best place for a rest, or the perfect place to start (if 50km of pedal power is too much for you).

Camping at Gellibrand

The main Gellibrand camping option is Dando’s Camping Spot on Sayers Track in the Otways. It has over 50 sites as well as picnic tables, fireplaces, caravan access, and toilets. Staying here lets you sleep under the stars in the sacred peace of a pristine forest. Plus, this particular Gellibrand river camping site is dog-friendly.

Fishing on the Gellibrand River

Reaching the ocean at Princetown, the Gellibrand River is one of the major river systems in the Otways. The river in Gellibrand (Vic) is a popular destination for all things outdoors such as hiking, biking and fishing. Gellibrand river fishing offers great prizes like trophy-sized river blackfish. Other species include perch, flathead, trout and salmon.
