Come together and celebrate the trail
AFTER 11 years of hard work and setbacks, the final section of the Brisbane Valley Rail Trail, Toogoolawah to Moore, was officially opened earlier last month.
BVRT Users Association President Paul Heymans said the politicians had their celebration last month, and now it was the community’s turn.
“The community was a very large part of the story... what drives the Brisbane Valley Rail Trail is the grass-roots support – it’s absolutely critical,” Mr Heymans said.
Residents and visitors are invited to celebrate the completion of the Brisbane Valley Rail Trail this weekend, and there’s no better way to celebrate it than by using it.
On Saturday, the community is encouraged to come together for a “multi-user” trail where walkers, runners, horse riders and cyclists will all come and celebrate what makes the rail trail great.
Starting in Moore for a breakfast put on by the Moore Memorial Hall Committee, attendees will then gather for a multi-faith blessing of the rail trail by Fr Ian Bailey and an unveiling of an interpretive sign with a history of the Brisbane Valley Rail Trail at Moore station.
From there, users will make the journey along the rail trail to Toogoolawah, where they’ll enjoy more live music as well as have the opportunity to peruse the Toogoolawah Markets.
Transport arrangements have been put in place, however attendees are advised they should check the Brisbane Valley Rail

Mr Heymans said the event would be a great day for the whole family, and encouraged everyone to get involved.
“It’s for the community – the rail trail has gone from zero to being hugely popular in south-east Queensland,” he said.
