Brisbane Valley

Brisbane Valley

West of Mt Glorious is home to the freshwater havens of Lakes Somerset, Wivenhoe and Atkinson, and there’s plenty of fish in the sea when it comes to activities at the dams. If it’s action you’re after, look no further than Lake Somerset, the home away from home for water skiers, jet skiers, wakeboarders and tube riders. If a peaceful paddle or dip is more your speed, Lake Wivenhoe is the perfect spot for non-motorised watercraft. Motorised vessels are restricted to a maximum of six knots at Lake Wivenhoe so you can unwind in peace. If fishing’s your game, you’ll wet your nets with the line-up of fish we’ve got in our lakes. Whether it’s swimming, boating, fishing or simply kicking back lakeside, our Somerset lakes will have you hook, line and sinker.

Brisbane Valley Rail Trail

The Brisbane Valley Rail Trail is Australia’s longest recreational rail trail and a bucket-list experience for cyclists, hikers and horse-riders. From Wulkuraka to Yarraman, you’ll journey from town to town following the once-laid tracks of the old Brisbane Valley railway line. The trail stretches across a phenomenal 161km of sensational Australian countryside. With sections ranging from low and moderate difficulty to advanced or challenging terrain, you can customise your journey to suit your endurance and experience levels. Beginners can safely explore shorter and smoother sections of the trail, while experienced adventurers can challenge themselves on the twists and turns of the track’s tougher terrain. So, whether you’re an avid trail buff, or you’re still on your trailer wheels, sorry, make that trainer wheels, be sure to lace-up or mount-up for the Holy Grail of trails, the Brisbane Valley Rail Trail.
