What's On

Let’s face it. You certainly work up a hunger when adventuring along Australia’s longest recreational rail trail, the Brisbane Valley Rail Trail. So why not swap your trail mix for a hunger fix at one of Somerset Region's local cafes or pubs? Somerset locals love nothing more than to dig into a generous serving of home-cooked tucker. That’s why the local watering holes and eateries always serve up the goods, packed with fresh Somerset flavours. We’ve put together some of our favourite flavour hubs along the Brisbane Valley Rail Trail, just perfect for a mid-trail treat.
