The village of Aratula is a popular roadside stop or overnight resting place for travellers, about an hour’s drive from Brisbane on the Cunningham Highway.
No trip through the town is complete without a visit to the local bakery, famous for its award-winning pies, or an overnight stay in one of the local motels.
Surrounded by beautiful natural areas, and with Moogerah Peaks and Main Range National Parks and Lake Moogerah on its doorstep, Aratula is the ideal launchpad for outdoor adventure within the Scenic Rim region.
On the southern edge of Moogerah Peaks National Park lies Lake Moogerah, a popular spot for waterskiing, jet skiing, boating and fishing. Here you’ll find an excellent range of places to stay and play, including a caf, holiday houses, luxury retreats, glamping, and camping and caravan parks.
To the west of Aratula, the Main Range National Park is part of the world-heritage listed Gondwana Rainforest area of South East Queensland and is famed for its ancient and pristine subtropical rainforest. Here you’ll find many walking tracks to explore the rainforest and walk to glorious sweeping views of the surrounding mountains and valleys.

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 Ugarapul to the West, and all those of the Yugambeh and Jagera language groups. We pay respect to their Elders, past, present and emerging.
