Scenic Rim Tours & Holidays

Discover regional produce, great hikes, wineries, and national parks in the Scenic Rim.

You’ll find plenty of country charm in the Scenic Rim in Queensland, a picturesque rural area located in the foothills of the Great Dividing Range, a few hours drive south of Brisbane. Stalls selling everything from local avocados to freshly cut roses line the grassy roadside and everything is impossibly green. Narrow switchbacks offer plenty of thrills on the way up the mountain to World Heritage-listed Lamington National Park. At the top of the range near the historic O’Reilly’s Rainforest Retreat, you’ll find brilliantly coloured parrots in every colour of the rainbow, a free tree top canopy walk and well-signed trails winding through the rainforest. There are plenty of other things to do in the Scenic Rim as well. Raise a glass at Scenic Rim wineries, check out some of the best Scenic Rim restaurants, stroll along the Tamborine Rainforest Skywalk, or take in the view at Mt Barney National Park. Scenic Rim weather can get chilly in winter, making this the perfect time to hike the National Park and enjoy a glass of wine in front of a toasty warm fire.

Walk Queensland's Scenic Rim

The scenic rim trip was fantastic. The hikes were really good and generally not too challenging (except for my dodgy knee!). The Aboriginal Smoking Ceremony was great. We visited a couple of local wineries and had dinner at 3 different country pubs which was fun. Mt Barney Lodge was a beautiful old building full of history. The guide Jonny was well organised and very knowledgeable, and the group were all good company and supportive. I'd definitely recommend this trip.

This trip was incredible! The walks were so enjoyable and full of wildlife- we saw Cat birds, wallabies, Lyre Birds, and even a friendly Python! Beautiful trails that are easy to walk while taking it all in! This trip is the perfect opportunity to experience the Scenic Rim on a variety of trails and activities that teach you tons about the area and First Nations. Truly an iconic, beautiful experience that I would recommend to anyone!

The Scenic Rim was a great trip. Our leader Joel has an amazing knowledge and passion for the area and loved sharing it with us. The walks are easily achieved by anyone with reasonable fitness . They are all on formed tracks apart from one very short Rick hop which is optional. I thoroughly enjoyed exploring a new area and it has whet my appetite to go back and continue exploring.

This is a fabulous trip for people who are able to walk 10km in hilly rocky areas. I live in Brisbane and discovered many rainforests without catching a plane!
