The Moe to Yallourn Rail Trail follows the route of the former railway line that serviced the Yallourn Power Station. The railway was built during the 1950’s to replace the original branch line, which joined the main line between Morwell and Moe. The new branch line was closed in 1986 as briquette production was moved to Morwell.

The trail traverses open countryside and bushy areas and features views of Lake Narracan, the Haunted Hills and Yallourn W Power Station. The trail passes the Moe Botanic Gardens and crosses Narracan Creek, both have access ramps from the trail. After crossing the creek flats the route passes Newborough.

A detour at Sullivans Track to Lake Narracan is well worthwhile, for a picnic or BBQ lunch or a swim. The trail finishes at John Field Drive near the Yallourn Power Station. The Moe to Yallourn Trail is excellent for family day trips at Lake Narracan and can also be combined with a scenic drive past the power station and open cut mines.
