Cycling or walking between Caboolture and Wamuran is about to get a whole lot easier. The new, Caboolture to Wamuran Rail Trail is now fully complete and open. The trail was constructed to showcase the history of the Caboolture to Kilcoy railway corridor, which has been closed since 1964, and provide a shared pathway from Caboolture to Wamuran.
This pathway provides links between major areas in Caboolture and Wamuran, stretching 10.5km from Beerburrum Road in Caboolture to Atwood Street in Wamuran. The pathway is 3-3.5m metres wide, providing plenty of room for bikers and walkers to share the trail. The path entries in Caboolture and Wamuran also feature signage, maps, shelters, drinking fountains, seating, landscaping, and safe road crossings.
The Caboolture trail entry point is left of the businesses located at 46 Beerburrum Road, between Toohey Street and Nursery Road. There is free parking along Beerburum Road, but please be mindful that this is a busy main street in an industrial area. The entry is marked with the large entry statement, which includes historical panels about the Caboolture to Wamuran Railway.
Please note there are no toilets, public toilets can be found at the Caboolture Trail Station or Caboolture Town Square.
