Do you and your family yearn for some fresh country air? Would you like to experience a traffic free bicycle ride with your children and grandchildren and have fun at the same time? Bring your family as we explore the Brisbane Valley Rail Trail between the beautiful towns of Fernvale and Lowood. We’ll follow the trail as it gently winds its way to Lowood where we’ll take time to sit and eat your lunch in the local park and the children can amuse themselves in the playground.
We’ll then meander our way back to Fernvale where you can visit the local bakery for a coffee and snack before you head home.
