Hidden gems that are closer than you think.
With spectacular natural beauty, sweeping valleys and mountain ranges, the Scenic Rim is a year-round destination brimming with foodie experiences, outdoor adventure, cultural pursuits, eco escapes and visitor attractions. The region is home to Australia’s most accessible World Heritage-listed rainforests, six national parks and three lakes as well as fertile farmland and welcoming country towns. Full of things to see and do, the Scenic Rim is just 80km or an hour’s drive from Brisbane and the Gold Coast in South-East Queensland.
We are proud of our diverse communities within the region. We acknowledge the traditional owners of the many lands within the Scenic Rim - the Mununjali in the Centre, the Wangerriburra to the East, the Ugurapul to the West, and all those of the Yugambeh and Jagera language groups. We pay respect to their Elders, past, present and emerging.
