For those of you who’ve been scouting Queensland for your next holiday destination, scout no more.
The Scenic Rim really does have it all. It’s where rolling hills meet mountain peaks. Where relaxing escapes can also include a good dose of adventure and where fresh, local produce is at your fingertips.
There are many options in the area when it comes to accommodation but if you love a view, you’ll want to check yourself into Milford Country Cottages. It’s a charming country escape, just 5 minutes from Boonah. There are two onsite cottages, built and decorated by Lyn and her partner John. You’ll also meet a few friendly characters that’ll greet you during your stay including Neddy the horse, a couple of chooks and a team of hungry cows.
Of course, humans need to eat too! There are some great options for food along the main stretch of Boonah, including The Story Tree Cafe. The shopfront is rather unassuming but as you step inside this eclectic café, there’s plenty to take in. You’ll find a range of new and secondhand books for sale, as well as handmade gifts created by talented locals. All the food is made in house too and the baked goods are what you’d call, a bestseller!
When it comes to this corner of Queensland, local sure is lovely. Scenic Rim Brewery & Café brew all their beers on site in the picturesque town of Mount Alford. Mike and Wendy have created a whole family of quirky ales, from Fat Man, a Maroon Ale named after Queensland football legend, Paul “Fatty” Vautin, to Beauy & Blue, a spiced pumpkin ale crafted with locally grown Beaudesert blue pumpkins. The beers are almost meals in themselves but wait until you see what’s on the menu! Wendy’s Dutch heritage shines through in her home-style cooking, delighting the Scenic Rim and beyond with foods like Bitterballen and Bratwurst hotdogs.
There’s a smorgasbord of things to see and do in this beautiful region and we can guarantee, they’re poised and ready to welcome you with open arms.
