The Brisbane Valley Rail Trail, or BVRT, is a recreational trail that follows the disused Brisbane Valley rail corridor from Wulkuraka, west of Ipswich, to Yarraman, west of Kilcoy. The 161km trail provides walkers, cyclists and horse riders with a unique opportunity to experience the diverse rural landscape of the Brisbane Valley.
The Department of Transport and Main Roads (TMR) is the state agency responsible for the day-to-day management and maintenance of the BVRT in conjunction with Ipswich City Council, Somerset, South Burnett and Toowoomba Regional Councils, and the Ambassadors of the BVRT.
