The Brisbane Valley Rail Trail reimagines the romance of rail travel in Queensland into a unique opportunity for bike riders to experience the scenic beauty and history of South-East Queensland.
Built between 1896 and 1913, the Brisbane Valley Rail Line once rattled with steam locomotives hauling timber, cattle and people northwards from Ipswich, fuelling the growth of Brisbane and South-East Queensland.

Though the tracks and the trains are long gone, the quaint historical stations remain with the rail line now reborn as a fantastic off-road trail running from Yarraman to Wulkuraka in Ipswich.
The trail meanders through gullies and around the tough hills, climbing and descending along gentle gradients a testament to the incompatibility of old steam locomotives and steep ascents.
This three-day adventure along the Brisbane Valley Rail Trail will find you camping overnight in Moore and Coominya, and passing through many classically country Queensland towns, steeped in a history forged by the rail line.
