Running an event

TMR is responsible for the management of organised events on the BVRT. You must first get an event permit from TMR to run an event on the BVRT. Types of organised events include but are not limited to:

  • commercial events – an event where a business or organisation charges money or obtains another benefit from supplying goods and services (for example, guided or organised tours)
  • competitive events
  • social (non-competitive) events
  • fundraising and charitable events.

Private groups (30 people or less) and individuals involved in recreational activities, other than for commercial purposes, do not need a permit. Examples include bushwalking or nature study groups, bird watching, or general outdoor activities.

Apply for an event permit

To apply for your permit, please complete an application form and submit it for assessment of your proposed event. Once all the required information is received, we will assess your application and consult with any organisations which may be affected, such as local council/s, community groups or any other Queensland Government agencies involved with the management of the BVRT.

Please and read the following information before you submit your application:

Please submit your application by emailing bvrt@tmr.qld.gov.au or by post at:

Department of Transport and Main Roads
C/- Rail Corridor Management 
GPO Box 1412

Please allow at least 4 weeks to process your permit application.

Whether you're attending an event or travelling on your own adventure, make sure you plan accommodation, bike hire and shuttle services well in advance to avoid disappointment. You can seek general advice from the BVRT Ranger or any local businesses that offer shuttle services, tours, or bike hire.
