River to Rail Trail

The River to Rail Trail in the centre of Gympie is great for walking and cycling. In January, February and May 2022, the Mary River flooded and caused significant damage to sections of the trail along the riverfront.

Council worked hard after the flooding events and were able to reopen the ‘Victoria Conservation Area’ section of the walk in July 2022.

Work commences at The Sands

Council have started works on the section known as ‘The Sands’, its completion date is expected before the Easter school holidays 2023.

Substantial work is required in the section between the Netball Courts and Albert Park before the trail can reopen completely. Council is in the process of securing external funding to fix this section of the trail and to revegetate The Sands. (red on the below map).

It is likely that the trail will reopen in full in 2023.
