Colleen Condliffe and Carly Noble say the $120m project could service dozens of industries and facilitate domestic and international trade.
Colleen Condliffe fought hard during her 16 years as a Loddon Shire councillor to get the local rail network up and running and now has her sights set on an inland port at Bridgewater on Loddon.
"My whole aim as a councillor was to get the Inglewood, Bridgewater and Marong line into Eaglehawk up and going again," Ms Condliffe said.
"I started working with a rail freight network in Melbourne on the costings and never let it go.
"When I got off council I still kept all those connections, and in that proposal was plans for an inland port, because all traffic comes to Bridgewater, in central Victoria — it's all freight, it's all trucks."
Ms Condliffe teamed up with farmer Carly Noble and the pair have been working on a feasibility study and financial plan in the hope of creating a privately owned hub with shareholders.
