Stoodley Forest Walk and Arboretum

National Parks and Reserves

Easy: 1 hour loop

An easy walk through an arboretum established by the early forestry industry and partly follows the Railton-Roland train line which closed in 1957 and had a station at Stoodley. It is also the site of one of the region’s first sawmills – built in 1854 on nearby Red Water Creek.

The original wooden water trough, from the early 1900s, was a regular stopping place for horses and riders and for traction engines to top up their boilers.

Access is via the B14, 5.5 km south of Railton or 5 km east of Sheffield.
