Brisbane Valley Rail Trail



164km (incl off Rail Trail section), Flat/Hilly, Medium, Unsealed, One Way ride, Rail Trail and Quiet roads.

This Rail Trail is in a class of its own! It’s a fun ride on a rough surface with lots to see along the way. The views to the ranges are great, we loved the horses and the old buildings in the towns are fantastic. Gravel grinders and those who like a challenge will love this Rail Trail. It has heaps of free camping, many motels and friendly country pubs for dinner. It’s quite a climb to Yarraman so you may prefer to start there and enjoy the downhill
