Brisbane Valley Rail Trail
1483 Brisbane Valley Highway, FERNVALE, QLD 4306
The Brisbane Valley Rail Trail when completed will be a 161km outdoor recreation trail from Ipswich to Yarraman. The rail trail follows the old railway line along the western side of the Brisbane River and travels through farming landscapes, native and plantation forests and rural-residential and country town settings.
The Brisbane Valley Rail Trail is great for taking a relaxed walk, burning a few calories with a run or jog and is a popular spot to walk your dog, go for a bicycle or horse ride. The original rail line was built in the 1880s to transport timber, milk and beef to Brisbane and supply farmers and towns along the railway line. The last rail service was in 1989.
