Welcome to the Scenic Rim

Start exploring

A warm welcome to our home

It’s a place of natural abundance, genuine smiles, and pride for simple things, done well.

Here you’ll find bigger skies, longer sunsets and places that feel impossible to leave.

Here there’s the space and stillness to slow down and breathe a little deeper.

And, as you move between our ranges and rainforests and find perfect country towns nestled in sweeping valleys, you’ll realise what we’ve known for ages; that you’ll never feel richer than in a place that lets you enjoy what’s most important.

All just an hour’s drive from both Brisbane and the Gold Coast in south-east Queensland.
