We will be walking one section of the Rail trail - Fernvale to Lowood return. The Fernvale to Vernor station is parallel to the Brisbane Valley Highway, very flat, lined with trees, but not much shade, however, the views are nice looking out towards to the mountains. Then Vernor into Lowood gets a bit more interesting with a few undulations, good birdwatching, views over the Brisbane River with some lovely views downstream, and a large colony of bats making their home in the trees. Arriving into Lowood, you'll be rewarded with the first section of actual railway for the trail; Lowood was the original terminus for the BVRT and has a pub, bakery and nice cafes for refreshments.
After a short visit to Lowood we will walk back the same way, with the option of rewarding ourselves with a pie from the famous Fernvale Bakery for lunch!
No refreshments will be provided on this walk as we recommend supporting the local businesses along the trail.
