Mega Mountain Biking Adventure

The Brisbane Valley Rail Trail is Australia’s longest recreational rail trail and mountain biking mecca for cyclists. From Wulkuraka to Yarraman, adventures seekers journey from town to town following the once-laid tracks of the old Brisbane Valley Railway Line. The trail stretches across a phenomenal 161km of sensational Australian countryside. With sections ranging from low and moderate difficulty to advanced or challenging terrain, riders can customise their journey to suit their endurance and experience levels. Beginners can safely explore shorter and smoother sections of the trail, while experienced adventurers can challenge themselves on the twists and turns of the track’s tougher terrain. So, whether you’re an avid trail buff or you’re still on your training wheels, be sure to lace-up or mount-up for the Holy Grail of trails, the Brisbane Valley Rail Trail. For added adventure, check out the Wivenhoe Hill Trails, a 16km trail network. With four trails to choose from, the Wivenhoe Hill Trails are the perfect place for outdoor adventure.
