Brisbane Valley Rail Trail: Ipswich to Fernvale

Sports and Recreation Facilities

The Brisbane Valley Rail Trail, or BVRT, is a recreational trail that traces the old Brisbane Valley rail line that commenced at Wulkuraka, near Ipswich, and continued to Yarraman, west of Kilcoy.

This 20km section of the trail follows the former rail corridor from Diamantina Boulevard, in the Ipswich suburb of Brassall, to the rural township of Fernvale.

A relatively shorter section of the BVRT, Ipswich to Fernvale (or vice versa) is perfect for a fun family adventure as you traverse through farmland, forest and picturesque rural settings along this off-road, traffic-free trail.

The surface of this section varies between sand, grass, gravel and rough stretches with exposed rocky ballast. The trail changes all the time, with sections that are shaded and others exposed.

By using the Brassall Bikeway, users can easily connect The Workshops Rail Museum in North Ipswich, and then travel via the road network to the historic Ipswich Central precinct (6.5km total) with its funky eateries, quirky shops and attractions like Queens Park and the Ipswich Art Gallery.

Alternatively, users can access the BVRT by catching the train to Wulkuraka Train Station and travelling 3.5km along the Brassall Bikeway to join the trail.
