Camping

Camping on the Brisbane Valley Rail Trail

Lightweight, wild camping is officially prohibited on the BVRT.

In addition, open fires are strictly prohibited due to the very high fire risk in our dry climate conditions.

Campsites and Rest Areas

Fernvale: Designated roadside rest area* about 1 km north of the town near the Geof Fisher Bridge,  just to the east of the Brisbane Valley Highway on the Brisbane River. Otherwise, the showgrounds in Lowood are a better option.

Lowood: Lowood Show Grounds

Coominya: There is no accommodation available in Coominya, camping or otherwise. Bellevue Homestead sometimes  accommodates guests – it’s worth giving them a call.

Esk: Esk Caravan Park

Toogoolawah – Toogoolawah Showgrounds and designated rest areas* available opposite the old Toogoolawah station and in Polly Crandell Park on the BVRT just south of the town.

Harlin: Designated roadside rest area* in the park in front of the toilet block.

Moore: Designated roadside rest area* in the park in the village centre.

Linville: Free overnight camping in the old station yards.

Benarkin: Free overnight camping in the old station yards.

Blackbutt: Blackbutt Show Grounds

Yarraman: Yarraman Caravan Park

* Technically, camping in tents is not permitted in roadside rest areas, but to our knowledge, this has never been enforced and is unlikely to be enforced.
