Scenic Rim - Gourmet Short Stay Walking Holiday

The Scenic Rim Region, only one hour south west of Brisbane, is a thriving rural paradise set in the foothills of the Great Dividing Range and surrounded by World Heritage listed national parks. This is a region built on the back of agricultural production spanning many generations. Your short stay tour during Scenic Rim Eat Local Week connects you with the tastes, sights and characters whilst enjoying lazy long lunches and other Eat Local events. The rich soil, climate and pure water create the ideal environment to produce award winning wines, cheeses and fresh farm produce. Visit award winning makers and growers to sample wines, liquors and crafted beers along with home crafted pickles, jams and pure honey. Contrast all these taste sensations with easy short walks in the forests of Tamborine and Main Range National Parks. Relax in comfortable accommodation, explore the scenic back roads with a local guide and soak up the relaxed atmosphere and thriving arts scenes of the Scenic Rim towns. Take to the skies and catch a truly unique vantage of this mountainous region with an optional Hot Air Balloon flight and champagne breakfast.
