Brisbane Valley Rail Trail

Wulkuraka (Ipswich) to Yarraman

Currently the longest rail trail in Australia, the 161 km Brisbane Valley Rail Trail (BVRT) follows the dis-used Brisbane Valley rail line which commences at Wulkuraka near Ipswich (built in 1884) and ends at Yarraman (final stage completed in 1913). The BVRT winds its way up the Brisbane valley, traversing farmland, forests, picturesque rural settings and country towns.  Mirroring the old railway line, the BVRT provides an off-road climb up the valley for day trippers, overnight camping or longer term adventures, with some challenging sections. 


Although it’s open all year round, some sections of the BVRT may be closed for short periods following severe weather events.  Check out the DTMR webpage for current information or visit the BVRT Facebook page.
