Description

This trail is not yet open.

This proposed 43km long rail trail would provide valuable recreational and commuting link for locals and a great attraction for visitors from Brisbane and beyond.

The Beaudesert to Bethania Rail Trail Support Group was formed in early 2009 to gather community, local government and state government support for this proposal. Several well attended meetings have been held and the Logan City Council is to go ahead with a feasibility study.

 

Background Information

The railway from Bethania Junction to Beaudesert was fully opened in 1885. Queensland Rail closed the line in 1996. Several other lines were constructed off this line, including one to Canungra, though these closed in the 1940's and 1950's.
