The Dookie Rail Trail is ideal for families with young kids, and those looking for an easy scenic ride or walk. The trail is 9.3 kilometres return, taking around two hours to walk, or 1.5 hours for a casual ride.

Be sure to look out for the abundant wildlife along the way. The third intersection (Hoopers Road) is home to Willy the Wombat. Echidnas, koalas, possums, Blue Tongue lizards, wedge tail eagles and kangaroos, along with the native birdlife are waiting to be discovered.

Please be aware that water and toilet access is not available along the trail.
