Scenic Rim

Area

Follow the changing landscape west and you’ll find yourself in the Scenic Rim, Brisbane’s world-heritage listed backyard, home to lush rainforests, spectacular mountain ranges and ancient landforms.

Food and wine, romantic escapes, camping, bushwalking, country pubs, art, history and adventures are all here, tied together by the landscape and the beautiful towns and villages dotted throughout.

Explore the great outdoors and trek mountains such as Mt Tamborine, Mt Lindesay and Mt Barney or lose yourself on one of the many trails through Lamington National Park, taking in the majestic waterfalls and breathtaking lookouts.

This natural wonderland can be experienced in the air, on the water or across the land with hot air ballooning, fishing, water skiing and wine tasting waiting for you as you discover the winding roads and natural fauna and flora.

Be pampered at one of the many country-style bed and breakfasts or escape from the rest of the world at the charming lodges, rainforest retreats and spa hideaways.

The beautiful Scenic Rim is a Brisbane treasure.
