Goomeri to Murgon Rail Trail Distance: 17.3km, Difficulty: H3.5 Sunday 22nd August 2021 

Description: 

From Goomeri Showgrounds (Elevation 255 meters) ride to the old Murgon Station (Now a Mens Shed - Elevation 323 meters) in the centre of town. From the Goomeri end, there is a gradual elevation until you reach a point 10.5km from Murgon where it peaks at 346 meters so its a 23 meter descent into Murgon town, but a climb of 91 meters till you reach this highest point. The first 7 km from the Goomeri end is challenging with about 4 creek crossings and 10 gates, and around 6km from Goomeri end the track is really rocky for about  a kilometer.  For coffee suggest either the Coffee Bar 79 Lamb St Murgon, Murgon Bakery 92 Lamb St Murgon, Ryia Cafe 116 Lamb St Murgon but nothing seemed to be open on a Sunday. There is markers every kilometer along the route from marker 28 just at western end of Goomeri all the way to marker 45 near the old Murgon Railway Station.
