BVRT TREK TRANSFERS & SUPPORT 2021

Independently trek the BRISBANE VALLEY RAIL TRAIL (BVRT) or SOUTH BURNETT RAIL TRAIL (SBRT) with our transfers.
  • Australia’s longest rail trail, the BVRT, is 161km, off-road, through scenic countryside with quaint rural villages and towns along the way, all ready to help keep hikers watered and fed. The surface is nearly all gravel.
  • The SBRT is almost 90km, with one half sealed between Kingaroy and Murgon, and the other half gravel (rougher than the BVRT) between Murgon and Kilkivan.
  • These are ideal treks to practice for Europe’s long-distance Camino pilgrim trails to Santiago de Compostela (which many thousands of Australians have done).
