BVRT TREK TRANSFERS & SUPPORT 2021

Trek the BRISBANE VALLEY RAIL TRAIL (BVRT) with our transfers and support!
Australia’s longest rail trail 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.
This is an ideal trek to practice for the Camino pilgrim trails to Santiago de Compostela (which many thousands of Australians have done).

NOTE THIS IS SELF-GUIDED

This is an opportunity to walk the BVRT self-guided and our advice is participants should be confident they can walk independently up to 30km per day on gravel surfaces with mild gradients (it was the railway line of course).

Our boots are not on the ground – they’re staying around the support bus.

BLISTERS are common hiking the BVRT – prepare yourself.

If planning to trek the full distance, the programme gives everyone a 3 day break between the halves. Altogether, you’ll walk 7 out of 10 days. These rest days (Tue-Wed-Thu) will help you rejuvenate. If you’ve visiting from afar, this is also an opportunity to enjoy a short holiday in Brisbane, Noosa or elsewhere in SE Queensland. Arcadia Travel can assist with hotel/apartment bookings.
