The Scenic Rim is just a 90-minute drive from Brisbane and the Gold Coast and is proudly home to some of Queensland’s most striking scenery. It also has a huge selection of local businesses that offer country escapes and the freshest local produce.
A great example is The Big Pumpkin in the town of Beaudesert. It’s a one-stop-shop for the region’s freshest farm produce. It’s a great first port of call when visiting the area.
Nearby is Wongari Eco Retreat which offers 2 secluded cabins on the banks of Christmas Creek. They offer complete privacy and a peaceful escape from the hustle and bustle.
Most guests like to relax at the cabins, but for those who want to get active, Lamington National Park is just down the road.
There are walks along Christmas Creek and a great way to explore is with a guide. Horizon Guides leads guided walks along some of the Scenic Rim’s most spectacular trails. They’re open to all ages and are a great way to experience the area’s natural beauty whilst learning about it too.
