easy walk heritage rail trail rainforest

This approx 12km loop trail follows the signature section of the rail trail and is largely covered with dense rainforest providing plenty of cover and a large and diverse variety of flora for such a compact area.

Keep an eye out for the deep cuts in the rock faces that were made when the Wamuran to Kilcoy rail line was built; opening in December of 1913, and running in conjunction with the Caboolture line until it's eventually closure in 1964 and then more recently converted into a shared use track.

There is generally some good birdlife as well a few friendly goanna's to be found along the way.


More information: 

At Woodford, 13km north west of Wamuran, a short section of the old line has been developed as a tourist railway. The original station buildings from both Wamuran and D'Aguilar can be found there. The 1km railway has been built to 2 foot (610mm) gauge and is based around locomotives from sugar cane lines. Trains operate on the 1st and 3rd Sunday of each month.
For more information see the Railway's Website.
