Logan River Tinnie Trail

The Logan River Tinnie Trail is a self-guided heritage trail along the Logan River, which tells a fascinating history of river life since the early 1800s.

It includes a book, a series of interpretive signs in riverside parks in Logan and Gold Coast City, and some walking trails in our premier riverside park - Riverdale.

The book provides the first comprehensive historical analysis of the Logan River district and in-depth studies of each locality between the river mouth and Logan Village.

Through interviews with local residents and more than 100 historic photographs, the Logan River Tinnie Trail captures the heartaches and triumphs of those men and women who chose to make a place for themselves on the riverbanks.

Local artist Darren Johnson has produced a series of imaginative sketches and a spectacular colour map to guide your journey along the river.
