Our Beautiful Big Outdoors / Attractions and Tours / Bicentennial National Trail
The trail is Australia’s premier long-distance, multi-use recreational trekking route, following historic coach and stock routes, old pack horse trails, mail runs and country roads for 5,330 km down the east coast of Australia from Cooktown in tropical far north Queensland to Healesville in Victoria.
The Bicentennial Trail (BNT) not only passes through the Lockyer Valley, the idea originated here at the then Gatton Agricultural College in 1972.
Allow at least six to seven months travelling around 25 km per day. You can travel by mountain bike, on foot or by pack horse, but not in any form of motorised transport.
