Diamantina Boulevard to Borallon Station Road - Part of BVRT

Brisbane Valley Rail Trail

10kms easy walking along the old Brisbane Valley Rail Trail. Passing old stations (or where they used to be, signs have been erected) of Muirlea, Pine Mountain and Borallon. Great for birdwatching. I would recommend for a winter walk - dappled shade, but would get very hot very quickly in summer.

Route/Trail notes

A detailed description of the walk! Easy walk, some very small undulations. Track surface changes, from sand, rocks, gravel, clay the whole way along. Nice scenery out towards the mountains, some open pasture, but mostly the track is lined with bushland (this doesn't mean shade necessarily). Some remnants of the rail way remain, in the form of nuts, bolts, pins, pieces of track.

Walked from Bayley Rd Muirlea at the end of the concrete bikeway to the Borallon station road carpark and return a total of 12km. Not much to see specifically but lovely quiet countryside filled with bird song. It was a nice time of year to do the walk, not too hot and beautiful clear blue sky.

Did a moonlight walk along this stretch. Saw a few spideys but not much else.

Walked with a friend while others rode. Started at 4am to try and beat the heat. Glad we did. In the cooler months am looking forward to tackling more of this trail.
