Journey Itinerary

Day 1: Arrive Brisbane – Scenic Rim

Self drive south to the bountiful Queensland hinterland. Your luxurious mountaintop retreat overlooks the World Heritage listed Main Range National Park, the Great Dividing Range and the Granite Belt wine region. After a light lunch, explore eucalypt forests by mountain bike or on foot. Or simply relax poolside soaking up the seclusion. Later, a three-course dinner is served of locally sourced seasonal creations matched with local wines.

Day 2: Scenic Rim

Join your guide for a bushwalk through lush rainforest or jump in a 4WD for a discovery tour. A pampering massage at on-site Spa Anise may tempt you this afternoon. Or perhaps a game of tennis, bocce, croquet or quoits. After another culinary sensation curated by the chef and sommelier, retreat to your spa suite for a nightcap by the fire.
