A service provided by the Brisbane Valley Rail Trail Users Association
The Brisbane Valley Rail Trail is a relatively safe environment, but accidents and emergencies do happen. It’s advisable to carry drinking water and a first-aid kit, including snake bite bandages. Cyclists should always carry a basic repair kit including a spare inner tube. There is a reasonably good mobile phone signal on most of the Brisbane Valley Rail Trail, but Benarkin to Linville is very patchy.
If you have a non- emergency problem and need general advice and assistance, contact the Brisbane Valley Rail Trail Ranger, Peter Kleis on 0467 729 409.
