Postman's Track Trail | Petrie

For the avid Queensland trailblazer, we have the next track for you! The Postman’s Track Trail promises gorgeous views and a challenge to boot, with a revamped path to make sure you stay on it and come back for a second run!

Hinterland Bushwalking Track

The 7km long trail begins just south of Dayboro or just over an hour west of the centre of Redcliffe. The drive to and from the trail will not only be gorgeous but is littered with boutique cafes and restaurants to make sure YOU have enough fuel to get up the mountain and back home again in once piece.

Tested and used by both the Dayboro Trail Riders Club and Dayboro Pony Club, it can be done walking on your very own two feet or riding on our four-hoofed friends. Less than 10 minutes south of Dayboro, there is plenty to see and do after your big walk to help cool you off or before to get you excited. Maybe check out the Dayboro Café for its delicious coffee and scrumptious food, or if you’re looking for something a little more filling after you track, Terah’s Restaurant will have something for everyone and will be sure to keep you going for your next trail.

Postman’s Trail History

Created by both the creative minds of the council and the public, this walking, running and riding track was made with the hearts and minds of those who were going to walk it, in the foreground of their thoughts. Previously used for only maintenance purposes for the beautiful surrounding environment, the refurbished trail gives a great opportunity for the people to get outdoors and keep active, perfectly suited to a range of activities that will cater to people actively looking for a healthier lifestyle.

Stay in the Hinterland

For those who are making a slightly further journey, there are some amazing places to stay and rest before or after your walk. South of the trail is illustrious Mercure Clear Mountain Lodge, with everything from breakfast to the bar and reliable internet so you can track your fitness goals. But, for something truly different, just north of the trail is the Dayboro Cottages. Perfect for families, these cute cottages will be perfect to relax and recover from a long hot day, and not to mention the furry friends that will be there to see and hang out with!

Whether you have done it before, or are looking for something new, this track will be sure to fulfill your bushwalking needs, and will be sure to have you coming back for more!
