BVRT TREK TRANSFERS & SUPPORT 2020-21

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.
Aussies can’t trek the Camino pilgrim trails to Santiago de Compostela in 2020 – but the BVRT is excellent training for it!
This is an opportunity to walk the BVRT self-guided and our advice is participants should be confident they can walk independently up to 25km per day on gravel surfaces with mild gradients (it was the railway line of course).
Our crew person is not walking the trail – they stay with the support bus.

NOTE: BLISTERS are common hiking the BVRT – prepare yourself.
