The Rail - Everything you need to know about the Mount Gambier Railway Lands

The Rail initiative of Council has concluded

The Mount Gambier Railway Lands is a unique and exciting new public space located in the heart of the City of Mount Gambier.

'The Rail' is an initiative of the City of Mount Gambier which aims support the community to test and trial a range events and activities at the Railway Lands.

In the lead up to the opening of the site, The Rail project team has completed over 80 site meetings and tours to introduce a range of community members to the space, each of which have shared their ideas and provided feedback.

As a result of these meetings, the Official Opening held on Sunday 15 November showcased a diverse range of activities, all of which were led and contributed to by our local community. The event created a fantastic opportunity to start experiencing first-hand how The Rail can lend itself to a variety of different events and activities moving forward.

The Rail project team was onsite at the opening to explore ideas about how the Railway Lands can continue to develop as a unique and exciting public space for the City of Mount Gambier. This feedback has been collated and will inform how we best encourage and manage activity at the site.
