On entering Boolarra today, Railway Park is lo­cated on the right hand side of the road. Nothing remains of the former station and sadly, in 1937, a fire raged through Tarwin Street, destroying many of the original shop fronts.

There is however, a well-defined track in the park that marks the start of the Grand Ridge Rail Trail to Mirboo North. Several closed rail lines throughout the Valley are now being developed as rail trails so walkers, cyclists and horse riders can have first-hand experience of the surviving railway infrastructure: the cuttings and embank­ments, the remains of platforms and bridges, the fruit trees that have grown along the lines and the resilient bulbs that flower every year in long aban­doned railway workers’ gardens.

As well as the Boolarra to Mirboo North trail, vis­its to the Moe to Yallourn and Traralgon to Strat­ford are becoming increasingly popular.
