The Scenic Rim is one of Lonely Planet's 2022 global Top 10 regions to visit, and with good reason.
Welcome to the Scenic Rim
Just one hour from Brisbane, the Scenic Rim is an area of spectacular natural beauty. It is renowned for its relaxed country lifestyle, and award-winning local produce.
Home to ancient UNESCO World Heritage-listed Gondwana Rainforests, six national parks and three lakes, sweeping valleys and epic mountain ranges, the region is scattered with welcoming country towns and villages.
A popular, year-round destination for foodies, the region's fertile farmlands are home to many gourmet producers. Visitors can spend their days exploring boutique wineries, breweries and distilleries, and sampling local produce at farmshops and local award-winning restaurants, while evenings can be enjoyed curled up by the fire in a charming cottage or luxury lodge.
Located on Brisbane's doorstep, it may only be an hour’s drive, but Tamborine Mountain feels like you’re a world away. The beautiful and picturesque area in the Scenic Rim has a rich history, is home to stunning national parks and rainforests, and has its fair share of food and wine experiences.
