Brisbane Valley Rail Trail (BVRT)
A recreation trail for walkers, cyclists and horse riders.
The entire 161km trail opened to the public in August 2018.
The trail allows walkers, cyclists and horse riders to experience the history of the landscape of the Brisbane Valley from Wulkuraka to Yarraman.
The trail follows the old Brisbane Valley railway corridor that originally extended from Wulkuraka, on the outskirts of Ipswich, to Yarraman, 160 kilometres northwest of Brisbane.
The original line was built in the 1880s to transport timber, milk and beef to Brisbane and to supply farmers and the rail towns. The last rail service was in 1989.
Extending through urban villages, native bushland, farming country and plantation forests, the trail provides a hands on experience of South East Queensland’s scenic landscapes.
Services, accommodation and facilities are available in the towns along the trail. The trail surface is gravel and unsuitable for road bicycles or personal mobility vehicles. No motorised vehicles of any type are allowed.
