Just one hour west of Brisbane, in the heart of the Scenic Rim, Boonah is a classic country town and the perfect base for exploring the region.

Foodies are drawn here from far and wide to experience the multi-award winning fine-diner, Blume. Putting the ‘oo’ and ‘ah’ in the town of Boonah, here the menu reflects chef Jack Stuart’s ethos of time and place – seasonal fresh food made using local ingredients and he and his team work with local suppliers to showcase the best of the Scenic Rim throughout the food and wine menus.

The superb surrounding scenery of rugged mountains and peaceful lakes allows for great scenic drives, bushwalking, mountaineering, sky diving, gliding and water sports.
The area boasts numerous picnic spots, country style accommodation, camping areas and many national parks with unsurpassed panoramas of Mount French, Mount Edwards, The Head, Mount Greville, Mount Maroon and Cunninghams and Spicers Gap.

Lovers of the great outdoors can escape the stress of the city in the idyllic setting of Lake Moogerah and Lake Maroon, ideal for camping and fast becoming Queensland’s most popular place for sailing, fishing, water skiing, parasailing and paddle boating.

The township of Boonah offers an excellent range of shops and services along with that special brand of country hospitality that comes from taking the time to enjoy life.
