Brisbane Valley Rail Trail Strategic Plan
The Department of Transport and Main Roads (TMR) is the state agency responsible for the day-to-day management and maintenance of the Brisbane Valley Rail Trail (BVRT) in conjunction with Ipswich City Council, Somerset, South Burnett and Toowoomba Regional Councils, and the Ambassadors of the BVRT.
Laying claim to the impressive accolade of “Australia’s longest rail trail”, the BVRT winds its way through 161km of picturesque, continually changing landscape, steeped in history and boasting a sequence of conveniently located, classically Queensland country towns.
The BVRT presents another great option for visitors to South East Queensland to discover the region, whether that be on foot, by bike or on horseback, over an afternoon, a day, a weekend or a full on week-long adventure.
TMR engaged Tredwell Management to produce a 5-year Strategic Plan for the BVRT that provides a blueprint for the future developmemt and management of the rail trail with a focus on identifying tourism and marketing initiatives.
