Blackbutt

The distinctive song of the bellbird can be heard in the natural surrounds of Blackbutt, a pretty town, rich in history and heritage and framed by native flora and mountain views. Bushwalkers, cyclists and horse riders can use the Blackbutt Rail Trail entrance to access the Brisbane Valley Rail Trail – the Trail can also be accessed from the Rail Head at Yarraman – refer to the Yarraman section for more detail. Blackbutt is also a great place to join the Bicentennial National Trail, a trail open to walkers, mountain bikers and horse riders which links up over 5000 kilometres of old stock routes along the Great Dividing Range from Victoria to Tropical North Queensland.

In town, next to the park, you’ll find the Visitor Information Centre housed in a replica of an old slab hut. Ask for maps, advice on local attractions and directions to the Woodfired Bakery where you can sample one of Australia’s best pies.

Don’t miss the Blackbutt Art Gallery and Butt Art Gallery (which also operates a regional cellar door). Spend some time browsing memorabilia and photographs at the Roy Emerson Museum, which celebrates the achievements of this locally-raised, international tennis champ. Roy won 12 Grand Slam finals, 16 men’s doubles titles and eight Davis Cup titles.

Cosy accommodation can be found at a range of quality establishments. If you’re travelling in September get along to the Blackbutt Avocado Festival – a vibrant celebration of agriculture, the beauty of the countryside and the local creative community.
