Yarraman

Fringed by hoop pine plantation forests, bunya pines and picturesque grazing countryside, the timber town of Yarraman sits at the junction of the D'Aguilar and New England Highways. Hotel/motel, B&B, caravan park and cabin accommodation is available.

You'll find a wealth of local information at Yarraman Heritage and Information Centre along with historical buildings and a museum featuring war memorabilia and displays of the timber and power industries. Held annually on the last full weekend of September, the Colours of Yarraman Festival is a community celebration of creativity through photographic competitions and displays, gardens, art and family activities.

Walkers, cyclists and horse riders can see nature at a relaxed pace on this part of the Brisbane Valley Rail Trail. Commencing at Yarraman, with entry points in Blackbutt, Benarkin, Linville and Moore, the 161km recreation trail follows the old Brisbane Valley railway line along the western side of the Brisbane River, meandering through small towns and agricultural landscapes and concluding at Wulkuraka, west of Ipswich. Closed to vehicles, the trail is one of the best places to see the elusive, endangered, ground dwelling blackbreasted button-quail, which have been sighted in hoop pine thickets.
