Logan Village to Yarrabilba Rail Trail (spur line off Bethania to Beaudesert Rail Trail) now open
Posted on 05/02/22
Logan City, bordering Metropolitan Brisbane to its south, officially opened a 3km Rail Trail in December 2021. The trail, linking Logan Village with the rapidly growing suburb of Yarrabilba, was a former spur line off the Bethania to Beaudesert rail corridor. This corridor is currently in the process of being repurposed as a rail trail but the spur line is now open. The former station at Logan Village has some remaining tracks in place but is now adorned with a set of, what looks like in daylight, a set of standing 2m high white bollards. However, at night time the ‘bollards’ become illuminated outlining human characters who represent some significance to the history of the region. A short distance away, on the Waterford Tamborine Road, is the clearly signposted entrance to the Logan Village to Yarrabilba Rail Trail.
The trail is a high quality asphalt sealed route that extends about 3km from Logan Village to Yarrabilba. The trailhead includes some attractive information signage and the trail itself extends through a mostly continuous green corridor of trees. The corridor passes through a semi-rural area and has intersections with wayfinding signage to adjoining streets. The trail terminates at Blossom St on the edge of Yarrabilba. Again the trail is clearly signed. This trail is a wonderful amenity to this area with its expanding population.
