Report

Solo run from Kilkivan to Kingaroy following the rail trail. The day was hot. Trail is unsealed from Kilkivan to Murgon, sealed from Murgon to Kingaroy. Bought Coke and an iced coffee in Murgon, which contributed to some GI issues for the next section, but an extended toilet and rest stop in Wondai and I was sorted. Bought some more food - Coke, Doritos and an ice block - in Wondai. Other than this I carried all my food. Water was "available" along the way. Sometimes this meant from a handwash basin in a toilet block. The longest stretch without water is the first section from Kilkivan to Goomeri. Toilets at Murgon Station were locked, but I was able to fill up from a tank at a workshop next to the station. Enjoyed chats with locals, travellers and fellow trail users.
