Welcome to the Boyne Burnett Inland Rail Trail

Boyne Burnett Inland Rail Trail

is an incorporated association aiming to facilitate a proposed development of the rail corridor from Taragoola (near Gladstone, Central Queensland), through the Boyne Valley, on to Monto, Eidsvold, Mundubbera and south through Gayndah.

The corridor is an inland link between Gladstone and Gayndah, which has great potential to attract tourists in numbers. In time, this website will showcase all the attractions along the trail.

If you have not seen some of the interesting places along the rail corridor, there are some interesting You Tube videos on our Galleries and Videos page.

You can read more about us here.

Keep up to date with new information about the trail and how it is progressing by following our blog. I encourage you to leave comments on the blog posts.

In time we will be publishing a newsletter. Please subscribe here to get all the news from Boyne Burnett Inland Rail Trail.
