The Downs Burnett Cycle Trail is the brainchild of members of the Toowoomba Bicycle User Group, Highfields Cycling Club and representatives of Mountain Bike Mecca in Crows Nest, the South Burnett Rail Trail Users Association and South Burnett Mountain Bike Club.
The Downs Burnett Cycling Trail is a 400km, multi-day cycling route that links towns from Crows Nest through to Bell and onto Kumbia-Kingaroy-Nanango-Yarraman to Cooyar and back to Crows Nest. Our approach is modelled on the very successful Central West Cycling Trail in New South Wales https://centralwestcycletrail.com.au/ .
Like the Central West Trail, the Downs Burnett Cycle Trail will be fully mapped and signed. With a website and social media presence in the pipeline. We are very excited about this project. Version 4 of the trail map is getting close to the finished product: https://www.strava.com/routes/2981077730856516518 . With an audit of resources needed to support cyclists in each town already under development.
Adventure tourism is really starting to take off in our regions, with more events and projects being developed all the time. It is our plan to make this exciting cycling route an integral part of our two regions moving forward.
