Brisbane Valley Rail Trail

About the Brisbane Valley Rail Trail

The Brisbane Valley Rail Trail, or BVRT, is a recreational trail that follows the disused Brisbane Valley rail corridor from Wulkuraka, west of Ipswich, to Yarraman, west of Kilcoy. Once complete, the 161km trail will provide walkers, cyclists and horse riders with a unique opportunity to experience the diverse rural landscape of the Brisbane Valley.; 

The trail from Toogoolawah to Moore is currently closed. Users accessing this section of the trail do so without approval. There is a suggested alternative route using minor country roads – refer to the below brochure and map for further information.

Location

The BVRT encompasses the Brassall Bikeway—Stage 4 which commences at Wulkuraka train station and currently ends at Diamantina Boulevard in Brassall. The bikeway was opened by Ipswich City Council in August 2016. 

The BVRT continues from Diamantina Boulevard north to Fernvale, before looping westwards to Lowood and then continuing north to Coominya, Esk and currently stops at Toogoolawah. The trail then picks back up at Moore, and continues northwards to Linville before turning west to Benarkin, Blackbutt and finally Yarraman.

The BVRT map and brochure below provides further information about the trail including local town maps, location of public facilities and places of interest. 

The BVRT Project

In January 2016, the Queensland Government committed $1.8m in funding to complete the Toogoolawah to Moore section of the BVRT. Additional funding has since been allocated to the project by the Federal Government and Somerset Regional Council. 

Somerset Regional Council is responsible for delivering the project and construction works are currently underway. It is anticipated that the project will be completed by mid-2018.
