Borallon Station Road to Fernvale - Part of BVRT

Brisbane Valley Rail Trail
Many walks are currently closed due to COVID-19. Please,
  • check the walk's official website to confirm if the track is open
  • turn back if it looks like the track is too busy when you get there

This is a nice part of the BVRT, the scenery changes quite a bit along the walk, bush track to farm land to open pasture looking out to the mountains. You'll need to do a quick crossing of the Brisbane Valley Highway, easy, but just keep your wits about you. Along the way you'll pass Wanora and Fairney View stations. Just after Fairney View is a lovely little creek where a bridge once crossed, a nice spot for a break. After this there is the slightest of inclines, but that incline continues all the way to Fernvale. But once there you've got a great excuse for a pie!

Walked in two sections since we need to walk up and back. First section Borallon Station Road to Fairney View and then second stage from Fairney View to Fernvale. This is a lovely section of the walk, the nicest so far coming from Wulkuraka. Lovely farmland and a gorgeous autumn day.
