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.
