How to spend a weekend in Mount Cotton

With Queensland good to go, now’s the time to reconnect with our friends and family, and maybe those we haven’t seen for a while. It’s also the time to reconnect with nature – after being cooped up for a few months, there’s just something refreshing about getting into the outdoors…

Mount Cotton is a great place to start… it offers the perfect hike to get the blood pumping! With various tracks to take, the pay-off is a lookout with views of the Redlands Coast and Brisbane CBD. The walk up is moderately steep, so be sure to do your research first.

A touch of pampering is the ultimate post-exercise reward. After all, it’s important to reconnect with ourselves too! Body and Soul Beauty is conveniently located at the base of Mount Cotton. They offer a range of treatments, but their ‘retreat recovery package’ seems fitting after a morning hike! Plus, Gail and her team really know how to spoil…

Of course, it wouldn’t be a traditional girls’ getaway without dropping into a winery… Sirromet Wine’s al fresco restaurant, Tuscan Terrace, is the perfect spot for a long, lazy lunch. As for a place to stay, Sanctuary by Sirromet is the winery’s accommodation option. Their tented pavilions are set in bushland, overlooking a natural lagoon… a magic spot to watch the sunset with a glass of bubbles!

Redlands Coast is a great place to reconnect with family, friends and nature! Check out their website to plan your next weekend getaway.
