VicTrack makes underused land and buildings available to community organisations through our community leases program.

We work with tourist and heritage railway operators, not-for-profit organisations and local councils to make our land and property available for a diverse range of social and cultural programs, as well as for beautification and recreational purposes. Community leases are made available by application.

Our process

Once we receive your application, it will be reviewed. We will contact you to let you know whether your application has been successful at this stage. If your application is successful, it will be referred to the  Department of Transport and Planning  to be cleared, and if cleared to agree lease terms. This process can take from three to six months.

VicTrack has a set of criteria for not-for-profit groups who apply for a community lease. We will discuss these requirements with you once VicTrack has received an approval to lease from the Department of Transport and Planning.


Please contact or 03 9619 8889 for community leasing enquiries.
